The Sumner County Archives is working to preserve and digitize an estimated 7,000 glass negatives of portraits that were taken by photographer Earnest Stark between 1906 and possibly the 1930’s.

Gallatin City Cemetery Broken Gravestones
Over the last two centuries, the cemetery has fallen into disrepair. Time has caused headstones to snap, and monuments to fall. Some graves are covered in dirt, others have faded so much that they are unreadable. That's why on Friday, the City of Gallatin launched a fundraiser, hoping to raise $30,000 to start repairs on the 200-year-old cemetery..
