Nashville City Cemetery

Nashville City Cemetery



Opened in 1822, the Nashville City Cemetery is the oldest continuously operated public cemetery in Nashville.

A walk through the cemetery is truly a walk through Nashville’s history. The gravestones tell the stories of individuals and families from the 1820s to the present day.

Because of a limited number of park patrol officers, there have been (rare) occasions of the gates not being opened or closed at the designated time. Should that happen, please call the Board of Parks at 615-862-8400 in order that someone is immediately sent to open the Cemetery.

There are signs within the Cemetery and an informational board in the breezeway of the Keeble Building to assist visitors with self-guided tours.
