What We Love About Living in Collierville

With a strong regional reputation, progressing economic development, and a high quality of life, Collierville, TN is a wonderful place to call home! At Magnolia Homes, we have planted our roots in this established and energetic town, with 5 current communities and our Main Office and Design Center! There are so many reasons why we love calling “The Ville” home, but here are just a few:

Local Amenities

One of our favorite reasons we love living in Collierville is because of the abundance of local amenities offered. Walking trails that connect to the Green Belt, multiple public parks with playgrounds, turf fields, tennis courts, spray parks, athletic fields, an award-winning Town Square, a fantastic public library, a local museum, and so much more are available for use to Collierville residents! There are also multiple prestigious gyms, ponds for fishing, and golf courses for recreational activities.

Rich in History

Founded by Jesse R. Collier in 1836, Collierville was the home of multiple battles in the Civil War. After a period of building and regrowth, Collierville saw substantial economic expansion in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and now boasts a high quality of life. Collierville’s downtown area is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in 2014 Collierville’s historic town square was ranked by Parade as the “Best Main Street” in America. The Morton Museum located on the Square is dedicated to informing residents of the town’s history and was recently nominated as a Best Local Government Place by ELGL.org.

Town Square

A great place to learn more about the town’s rich history is the Collierville Town Square! The Town Square is lined with local shops and businesses, restaurants, a charming coffee shop, and places to indulge in your sweet cravings! In the center of the square is a spacious green space with brick-lined walking paths that lead to a charming gazebo. Throughout all seasons, you can expect to see holiday celebrations, concerts, festivals, and picnics held here! Collierville’s annual Christmas tree lighting brings spectators from all over to see the Square come to life with Christmas lights for the season! The first weekend of May hosts the annual “Fair on the Square” full of fun games for families, art from local vendors, food trucks, and more! Additionally, there is a family-fun Halloween event hosted at the Square each October full of trick-or-treating, costumes, and games!

The town takes education very seriously, and continuously invests in elevating the educational experiences offered.
