NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville has opened an exhibit about cemeteries.

"Silent Cities of the Dead" focuses on the role cemeteries across the state play in the study of history.

They include Memphis’ Elmwood Cemetery, where many of the city’s historical figures are buried; Nashville City Cemetery and First Presbyterian Church in Knoxville, both on the National Register of Historic Places; are Upper Cumberland cemeteries, with a large concentration of "tent style" graves.

The exhibit will run through early March.
