Rural Cemeteries in Davidson County

Throughout Davidson County, from the late 18th Century

Davidson county has many small rural cemeteries under threat from development, such as the circa 1791, Thompson-Collinsworth-Davis Cemetery, pictured here. These cemeteries and their gravestones may be the
only vestige of the area’s nineteenth century history. Too often unscrupulous developers remove the remnants of the cemetery without permits. The cemeteries are also threatened by vandalism and neglect.
