“Cemetery visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Went to see Mark Twain's gravesite, but found a great walking cemetery also. Many beautiful mausoleums and markers. Very hilly, but would be good for a long walk.

“Very large lovely cemetery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This beautiful cemetery has the graves of some noted persons--Mark Twain the writer, Hal Roach the famous Hallywood producer and Ernie Davis, who won the Heisman trophy in football. The cemetery does a good job with signs directing you to those graves of famous people.

“Interesting final resting place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Twain's grave and the family are always interesting. Ernie Davis and Hal Roach - impressive. I did not realize that Roach was born in Elmira and heard Twain lecture.
