Great and unique spot! Huge headstones. I'm dying to take a tour of the cemetery to get some historical background. And this place would be great to tour on Halloween! i have been here for photography purposes many times.

Taking a step back to view the history of good times and bad in Memphis. Many Generals of the Civil War. Memphis Leaders, Yellow fever victims. and others of the south. Beautiful trees and monuments. Go on a cool day. It is a huge place.

Just stumbled upon this cemetary and so glad I did. The graves are marked with concrete borders for flower gardens I suppose. It is a beautiful place. There's an audio tour but did not have time to check that part out.

Each year in October Elmwood has a guided walking tour at dusk. There are actors who represent several of the famous, and not so famous, buried in Elmwood. You learn about their lives/deaths, and history. Highly recommend the tour. Elmwood is rich with history and beauty.

This is an old cemetary with lots of Victorian monuments and trees. Cvil War veterans, old Memphis families - African American and white
are buried here. There is section where the martyrs of the yellow fever epedimics ar buried, including the doctors and the Episcopal nuns, a Chinese section with tombstones in Chinese. Take a guided tour or drive around the many "streets."
