Nashville Famous Grave Tour – Oct 2019

Adam, Rachael, and I decided to stay close to home one of the days of fall break, and put together a tour of 20 of what we considered to be the most famous grave sites in Nashville. While out touring the cemeteries, our list grew to 27, as we happened across some unexpected gravesites. If you’re in Nashville and visiting graves is something you find interesting, hopefully this post can help you locate some of interest. Along with each listing, is a link to the GPS location in Google Maps, as well as a link to their Wikipedia page if you would like to learn more about them.
