Demonbreun [deh-mun-BREE-un] — A street running from downtown toward the Gulch and over 1-40; named for Timothy Demonbreun, a French-Canadian fur trapper who was considered the first citizen of Nashville.
Lafayette [lah-FAY-et] — A street that runs southeast from the 8th Avenue roundabout and, after several blocks, changes names to become Murfreesboro Pike.
