Pasqueit Cemetery

Hobson Road

Pasqueit Cemetery is a vernacular/informal graveyard with burials that date to roughly the mid-nineteenth to early twentieth century, including some stone box tombs. The cemetery has ties to the early history of Cane Ridge and other families that were important to the development of this part of Davidson County. Also within its bounds are numerous unmarked graves, many of which are believed to contain burials associated with enslaved persons from the area.

Threats to the site include a large, new mixed-use development that will fence the cemetery but envelop the site and significantly alter its historic setting. Preservationists have advocated for the developer to conduct a ground penetrating radar survey and any other identification methods needed to better understand the site’s history and ensure all associated burials are protected from disturbance.
