Go when azaleas blooming. It's like entering paradise once you cross that little bridge. Staff in office very knowledgeable and helpful.
If you want to know about a place visit the cemetery. It tells the story and how the care for their place in history. The audio tour was easy to follow and you can walk it or drive. Tennessee can be proud.
This is a beautiful old cemetery. Trees weren't in bloom yet, but it was still lovely. It was a cool morning, so we enjoyed being able to drive through and read the signs regarding the history of the cemetery and its residents. Unique monuments. A thought provoking journey.
