LaGuardo is an unincorporated community in Wilson County, Tennessee. It is located along Tennessee State Route 109. The community has a handful of stores, utility district building and churches.

History[edit]

LaGuardo means "watchdog." An early spelling of the community was "Lagad" or "Lagado." In 1950 the center of the community was moved from Saundersville Road and Woods Ferry road to a mile southeast. This was due to damming of Old Hickory Lake and the increasing prominence of State Route 109.[2]
