Vanderbilt University is located on over 300 acres about a mile and a half southwest of downtown Nashville. Home to more than 300 tree and shrub varieties, the campus was designated a national arboretum in 1988. Buildings on campus date to as early as the University’s founding in 1873. The Peabody section of campus has been a registered National Historic Landmark since 1966.
