Mark Twain/Ernie Davis

My kids will be passing thru Elmira this summer with their grandmother and wanted to see Mark Twain's grave and also see anything pertaining to Ernie Davis. Can someone help?

Try http://www.marktwaincountry.com/default.asp for some general info, including lots of Mark Twain stuff (obviously...).

I belive both Mark Twain & Ernie Davis are buried at Woodlawn Cemetery, and there is an Ernie Davis middle school, I think that is where his statue is.

That is correct. Woodlawn Cemetary is "home " to many local famous people. There is also a Mark Twain displau/gallery at the Chemung Valley History museum on Water Street. If you have teen you may want to stop up to Harris Hill or Eldridge Park for fun activities.

Try this linkk for a fullcalender of events:
