Gower Cemetery.jpg


Located in West Nashville off River Road, this historic, pioneer family cemetery sits on a portion of land originally settled by Reverend William Gower (1776-1851) and his wife Charlotte Garland (1782-1860). The final resting place of many who helped settle Nashville, the Gower cemetery is tremendous piece of Nashville history.

Today this historic cemetery is cared for by descendants of the Gower family and others buried there. A restoration effort is under way and the Metro Historical Commission Foundation is proud to help raise funds for this important effort. Please consider donating to the cemetery renovation.
