Upcoming Exhibits

"Taking Cover: Nashville in the Nuclear Age"

Starting December 13th and running until March 1st, the Metro Archives will have an exhibit on display illustrating Nashville's response to the constant threat of nuclear attack caused by the Cold War. Most of the items on display come from our collection of records from what was the Nashville-Davidson County Office of Civil Defense, and what is now the Metropolitan Nashville Office of Emergency Management.

The exhibit will be displayed in the West Reading Room in the Metro Archives.
