Movers & Thinkers: How A Collector Of Nashville’s Old Relics Tries To Keep History Alive

May 12, 2016

There aren't many people who own as much of Nashville's history as David Ewing.

He has one of the largest private collections of city memorabilia, including items from the Centennial Exposition in 1896, the women's suffrage movement and the Civil Rights era. He seeks out these physical pieces of history at flea markets, garage sales and auctions. He talked to WPLN's Emily Siner in our live series, Movers & Thinkers, about why he seeks out tangible proof of the past.   

This audio is an excerpt from the latest episode of our Movers & Thinkers podcast. Hear more of the conversation with David and two other Nashvillians working to preserve history by downloading our podcast on our website, on iTunes, or on Google Play.
