Mount Juliet is a city located in the western portion of Wilson County, Tennessee. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 12,366. An urban legend states the town was named after the alcoholic drink Mint Julep, but in acutality, it was named after early settler Julie Gleaves. Mount Juliet served as a stop on the Nashville & Eastern railroad beginning in the late 1800s, and did not see major growth until the mid-20th century, despite its close proximity to Nashville. The town's major boon came when Interstate 40 was constructed. Mount Juliet was incorporated as a city in 1972.
