Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Fiat Dealership Serving Millington, TN
Less than half an hour north of Memphis sits the great community of Millington, Tennessee. This small town gives you the best of both worlds by keeping you away from the hustle and bustle of the big city when you don’t want it and giving you easy access to it when you do. Want to learn more about Millington? Keep reading for an overview of some of our favorite aspects of our neighboring city to the north.
Millington’s official history dates back to 1878 when Mr. and Mrs. George Millington donated a large portion of land to a group of settlers so they could start a town, with the request that the town be named in their honor. In the early years of Millington, the military had a strong presence there, using Park Field as a Navy pilot training facility during World War I and World War II. Today, there is a smaller military presence and the air field is open for public and private use.
Today, Millington is home to the Memphis International Raceway. This high-powered raceway hosts numerous race events throughout the year, including the International Hot Rod Association World Finals, Nitro Jam, Professional Drag Racers Association, and many more.
If spending time with nature is more of what you crave, be sure to visit the Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park. This large park covers more than 13,000 acres. Visitors can go biking, boating, horseback riding, fishing, camping, and of course hiking.
For a taste of fresh, local produce and locally-made artisan crafts, visit the Millington Farmers’ Market. It is open every Saturday from May through October and is located at 5152 Easley Street.
