lmwood is the most historic ground in this part of the world.  The dramatic Entry Bridge, the Carpenter-Gothic Office Cottage– the entire 80-acre cemetery – are all on the National Register of Historic Places, and Elmwood is also an official Bird Sanctuary and Arboretum.  Reserve a place in Memphis history.  Beneath our ancient elms, oaks and magnolias.  In the company of our most honored and revered.  Most famous and infamous.  Most loved and feared.  Among the veterans of every American war, even the Revolutionary War.  Side-by-side with generals, senators, governors, mayors and madams.  Take a tour, and visit the last 160 years in a shady hour or two in Elmwood. Volunteer, and preserve history.  Donate, and make a timeless gift.
