NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – The airport is celebrating a milestone, it’s Nashville International’s 82nd birthday.
Pictures shared on the airport’s social media account on Wednesday showed Berry Field Nashville when it opened in 1937.
The parking lot was small back then and it so happens to be the day the last piece of steel put in place in the new concourse.
The area will have six new gates, dining and retail. It will open next year.
