The Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged is a historic building in Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.. It was built in 1916 for the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Roman Catholic order which takes care of the elderly poor.[2][3] It closed down in 1968, and it was turned into a series of nursing homes until 1998.[3] It was subsequently used by the music industry, including Sony.[3] In 2014, Sony Music sold it to Vanderbilt University for US$12.1 million.[3]

The building has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since July 25, 1985.[4]
