Burwood, Tennessee is an unincorporated community in southeastern Williamson County, Tennessee.

History

The hamlet was "originally named Williamsburg, later Shaw and ultimately Burwood."

In the middle decades of the 20th century, Burwood was a rural community that served as a trading center for area farmers, while much business moved to the city of Franklin.

Burwood is the location of the John Pope House and the Huff Store, which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The opening, in 2012, of the segment of SRĀ 840 (now signed as InterstateĀ 840) near Burwood was expected to lead to increased economic activity in the community.
