Old Hat Co. and Old Hickory

We are Matthew and Sarah Sutherland. We have lived in Old Hickory, TN since 2015. We fell in love with the nostalgic feel of Old Hickory Village immediately!  We wanted to find a way to give back to the community, support our neighbors and share how wonderful this town is. That is when Old Hat Co. was born.

Old Hickory Village was established in 1918. The DuPont gunpowder plant was constructed and the homes were built around it to house its employees. Today the Village of Old Hickory still stands in the shadow of the DuPont plant, which continues to employ several hundred employees. The American spirit of the community thrives with historic homes, local shops, a hip coffee house and a beautiful marina.
