The Forgotten Tennessee Gravesite That No One Ever Visits

A forgotten gravesite that no one visits – or, perhaps, everyone visits without knowing. It sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? A forgotten gravesite in a highly public place, a body buried just beyond the consistent tread of congresspeople and tourists alike. Here in Tennessee, you’ll find a very important human buried in a highly important place: right on the grounds of the state capitol. If you’re looking for the grave of the former president of the United States, James K. Polk, it’s much closer than you think.
