A walk through the streets of Nashville...

Archivist Will Thomas recently took a walk through the abandoned streets of downtown Nashville (at a safe social distance, of course). He snapped several photographs to document this time in our collective history. We’re sharing a few of his photographs here...

These photographs will become a permanent part of the State Library and Archives digital collection documenting our state’s response to COVID-19. View the entire digital collection HERE.

For information on how you might document your own experiences during this time of social distancing, we encourage you to visit our Education Outreach page, where you’ll find instruction from our staff on how to record your experiences for posterity.


The Tennessee State Library and Archives is a division of the Office of Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett
