The Ridges Cemetery project has been featured on a series by Aljazeera America. The project places markers on headstones of former patients, more than 1900, who were buried listed only by numbers. The reason people were buried only by number remains a mystery, but it is widely believed that it was because of their status of mental health patients. WOUB produced The 1900: Voices From the Athens Asylum, in 2013 featuring the project.
