History

The community takes its name from Antioch First Baptist Church, established in 1810. As recently as the 1960s Antioch was a small community catering to the needs of area farmers with amenities such as a feed mill. Adjacent to Bakertown (a similar small community) it was located on the banks of Mill Creek, a minor tributary of the Cumberland River that rises near Nolensville, several miles to the southeast. This area has become less important over time as zoning restrictions forbidding further development on a floodplain have limited the construction of more businesses in this area, which had started to become quite congested.[original research?] Look up tributary in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Present day

The presence of large quantities of affordable housing led to influx of young families with children, greatly overtaxing the area's schools, which have been overcrowded for decades and remain so, despite an extensive construction program and the development of some private schools, largely church-affiliated. Large numbers of recent immigrants have also come to Antioch in the last two decades, attracted initially by the affordable housing and also by the presence of immigrant communities. Immigrants are predominantly from Southeast Asia and Latin America, but many are from other places.[citation needed] Immigration is the act of moving to or settling in another country or region, temporarily or permanently. ...
