The Gallatin City Cemetery is a strong example of a 19th-century southern city cemetery. Its tombstone styles, landscaping, and grave plots reflect the demographics, history, and culture of the people of Sumner County since the establishment of the cemetery in 1818. The garden cemetery movement of the second half of the 19th century influenced the growth of a park-like layout as the cemetery expanded in size and capacity. Its status as the premiere burial site in Sumner County in the 19th and early 20th centuries is emphasized by many grand tombstones and the presence of the graves of several people who were significant to the history of Gallatin, Sumner County, and
Tennessee.
