Spooky! Nashville City Cemetery hosts museum magnet students & families

Families from the museum magnet schools got in the Halloween spirit as they ventured to the Nashville City Cemetery last Saturday. Students and their parents got their scare on as they bravely listened to spine-tingling tales about the many famous Nashvillians who are buried in the city’s oldest cemetery. Davidson County historian Dr. Carole Bucy led the haunted tour which included well-known, local ghost stories like The Lady’s Lantern, The Tapping Finger and the Restful Mr. Robertson.

Dr. Bucy, who also is the author of the fourth and fifth grade social studies textbooks for Metro Schools, invited students to respectfully ring the cemetery bell - while at the same time warning them never to ask “For whom does the bell toll.”


John Early Museum Magnet Middle School and Robert Churchwell Museum Magnet Elementary School provide FREE monthly family expeditions to area museums and organizations. On November 16, they'll head out to the Belle Meade Plantation, where students and their families will participate in a Victorian Tea and see the Magic Lanterns.
