Edgehill Polar Bears

Edgehill Polar Bears Nashville TN What's Cookin' Nashville

History Of The Bears

The polar bear statues first came to stand at 1408 Edgehill Ave. around 1930, just outside of the Mattei Plaster Relief Ornamental Company, which made an array of figurines.

According to The City Paper, the intent for the bears was to advertise Polar Bear Frozen Custard shops.

Later, Rev. Zema Hill bought the bears and placed them in front of his home and his funeral home.

Because there were several bears, their history and movements become a bit of a puzzle, perhaps best documented by local historian and blogger Debie Cox.

But the two prominent Edgehill bears were eventually purchased by the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency, which erected them at the plaza where they remain today.

‘No Artistic License Needed’

Last year, the bears also become a logo for Edgehill, appearing on eight signs that mark the boundaries of the neighborhood — a move that local leaders said was increasingly necessary.

“With all of the development … we felt like there was a lot of encroachment,” said Rachel Tapper Zijlstra, president of the Edgehill Village Neighborhood Association. “We were starting to see things like ‘Gulch South’ and ‘12South’ when people would describe our neighborhood.

“Edgehill has been a neighborhood since before the Civil War.”

Several Edgehill nonprofits banded together to create the signs, and Zijlstra said some haggling with a development company led to a donation to pay for them.

And she said a survey made it obvious that a polar bear should be on the sign — and not stylized in any way.

About Biscuit Love

We love local. Here’s a list of some of the suppliers we work with who always provide the very best quality ingredients.

Biscuit Love The Gulch Nashville TN

Bear Creek Farm’s cattle are born and raised on 1,400 scenic acres near Leiper’s Fork, TN. Bear Creek Farms is a sustainable grass-fed, grain-finished cattle farm, raising all-natural Angus beef in a responsible and humane way. The Cherrys are people who are truly dedicated to raising happy animals and we are proud to serve both their beef and pork.

Beaverdam Creek Farm is made up of 73 acres of rolling hills, lush green pastures, and woodlands bordered by the clear-flowing waters of Beaverdam Creek in Coble, TN. The Lingos stay true to their guiding principle of raising their produce the way our Creator intended: free of harmful chemicals, antibiotics, growth stimulants, and GMOs. Their seasonal produce serves as the inspiration for many of our seasonal dishes.

Blackberry Farm Brewery has made waves with their saisons. From a refreshing summer saison to a Fall saison aged in oak barrels to their current offering, a moody, dark Winter saison, we are positive you will enjoy each one as much as we have.

Bloomsbury Farm is nestled in the hills between Smyrna and Nolensville, TN. While vegetables and herbs are a large part of the operation, their variety of Heritage chicken eggs are what keep us coming back.

Biscuit Love Nashville Monday Breakfast

Bourbon Barrel Foods started in the garage of founder Matt Jamie in Louisville, Kentucky. We’ve been enjoying and using their Bourbon Madagascar Vanilla Extract (aged in barrels that used to hold some fine Kentucky bourbon) to give our food even more of a Southern flavor. Their motto is “Slow. Small. Simple.” We think they should also add “Superb” to it.

Cruze Dairy Farms is a family dairy farm in Knoxville, Tennessee. They milk Jersey cows and bottle their own whole pasteurized Jersey milk and real churned buttermilk. And as their t-shirts state, we can attest that biscuits really do rise better with Cruze buttermilk.

The Charleston Tea Plantation is located on historic Wadmalaw Island in the heart of the Lowcountry of South Carolina. We fell in love with the Charleston Tea Plantation on a trip to Charleston, and you will fall in love with our sweet tea! It is an exceptional product being grown right here in the South.

Jackalope Brewing Company has been supporters of Biscuit Love since our days on the truck and as long-time fans of theirs, we are thrilled to be able to reciprocate! Their American Pale Ale, Thunder Ann is made with honey and biscuit malts which we think is a perfect complement to our menu and pairs very well with The Princess.

Helen Hooper-Hirst Pottery uses Tennessee clay to hand-make her pottery in her home studio in Lockeland Springs in East Nashville. In floating blues and iron-saturated browns, her work is inspired by the Tennessee landscape’s rich, natural colors which we enjoy each time we sip from our beautiful coffee mugs.

Weisenberger Mill has been “the baker’s choice” since early 1865. Owned and operated for six generations by the Weisenberger family, the mill is nestled on the banks of the South Elkhorn Creek in the heart of central Kentucky. One trip to this water powered mill was enough to convince us that our biscuits wouldn’t be quite Southern enough without their flour.

Centennial Park Planning

Centennial Park Planning

Centennial Park Master Plan Cover

The Centennial Park Master Plan was completed in 2011 following a two year process lead by landscape architecture firm Gustafson Guthrie Nichol Ltd. The plan outlines the future vision for the oldest and most visited park in Nashville.

Centennial Park Master Plan

Phase One Implementation

The first phase of master plan implementation was completed in the summer of 2015. This work included the following improvements:

The Cockrill Spring Zone

This area includes much of the park’s West End Avenue frontage. The historic Cockrill Spring (which had been buried and drained to a sewer for a century) was brought back to the surface and creates a new water feature surrounded by a native Tennessee landscape.  The spring water is filtered through a wetland garden before being used first for irrigation and then pumped to Lake Watauga to enhance water quality. This area also includes a permanent venue for Musicians Corner with seating areas nestled into the site’s natural contours and better utility infrastructure for performances. The project also involves restoration of the park’s historic perimeter wall and street lights, new paths, interpretive signs and other enhancements.

The Parthenon Zone

This is the area between the Parthenon and Lake Watauga. A spaghetti of roads and parking was consolidated into a single lot, freeing up space for a beautiful new approach to the Parthenon that includes an entry plaza, a formal events lawn and new gardens, trees and landscaping. A rain garden cleanses and cools parking lot runoff before it enters the lake.

Lake Watauga Water Quality

An integrated strategy to water quality in Lake Watauga has included the dredging of over 3,000 cubic yards of silt, the installation of vegetated floating wetland islands that outcompete algae for phosphorus and a new aeration and circulation system.  In addition, over 60 million gallons of cold Cockrill spring water is pumped to the lake. Stormwater runoff from the Parthenon roof and nearby parking lots is cleansed through rain gardens before entering the lake.

Future Phases

Future phases of master plan implementation will occur as funding becomes available.

Rotier's Nashville TN Cheese Burger

Rotier’s has been serving cold beer, burgers, and handmade milkshakes since 1945. John and Evelyn Rotier started the restaurant after WWII, the building was originally a carriage house for the Elliston Mansion. Rotier’s started as a beer joint with cheeseburgers and pinball machines and later evolved into a full scale restaurant soon after gambling became illegal in Tennessee. The meat and three menu came along, or “meat and vegetables” if you are not from Tennessee, so patrons could choose from several different home cooked meals. John and Evelyn had three children: John, Margaret, and Charlie Rotier, who all worked in the restaurant.


We have been a Nashville landmark for many years and continue on with third generation family members to this day. The Cheeseburger on French Bread is Rotier’s claim to fame, winning many local and national awards from USA Today and Food Network Magazine.
