On Christmas Day, 2020, a bomb tore through a section of historic downtown Nashville. This bomb left in its wake untold destruction to historically and architecturally significant buildings that make up the identity of a part of the downtown core. This area of the city was home not only to businesses and entertainment venues, but was also a vibrant neighborhood, home to an eclectic blend of artists, business people, and community leaders.

Together, The DISTRICT, Inc and Metro Historical Commission Foundation have created a fund to help restore the vitally important historic district of 2nd avenue. The funds will be used to help support structural assessments of and facade repairs to the irreplaceable historic buildings impacted by the explosion.
