Spent a couple of hours walking through Woodlawn Cemetery. It contains the graves of Mark Twain, Hal Roach and Ernie Davis. There are many interesting monuments. The National Cemetery is located next to Woodlawn Cemetery.

If you are a fan of the author, Mark Twain, you will appreciate being able to visit his grave site. It is very humbling. Other family members are also buried at the same site, and at times, visitors will leave small gifts on the stone memorial in honor and memory of their best loved author.

Who could resist the chance to see Mark Twain's grave, Hal Roach, or the "Elmira Express", Ernie Davis, who died much too young. They will provide you with a map to find all of the notable gravesides, and there are many signs to help guide you as well. Hard to say much about the landscaping, etc. in December, but we found what we came to see. Note that there are two Woodland cemeteries.....one a large National cemetery, the other the one referred to here. Next to one another.

Mark Twain and family are there as well as Ernie Davis and a host of other distinguished people. The cemetery is kept up beautifully. There is a real sense of pride here! It is definitely a must see while in Elmira.
