Events March 2019
Visitors are welcome to step back into history and experience eighty acres of stately trees and statuary in the beautiful blend of nature and art that is Elmwood Cemetery.
Please come by the Victorian Carpenter Gothic Cottage which serves as our Visitor Center for maps, audio tours, picnic tables and handicap accessible restrooms. Research assistance is also available in the cottage, and security is on the grounds during business hours.
Once you register for an event through Eventbrite or over the phone you will be added to the registration list for that event. For Eventbrite registrations, you may print your receipt or save it to your mobile device, but it is not necessary. You can simply give your name, or the name of the purchaser, when you arrive for the event.
Registration for all events at Elmwood Cemetery is final and non-refundable.
The Emerald Isle: The Irish (& Scots!) of Elmwood
Erin go Bragh! Join the staff of Elmwood Cemetery in the Lord's Chapel at 2 pm on Sunday, March 17th for a unique treat in recognition of St. Patrick's Day.
We'll kick off the evening with delicious Irish-themed treats, and beer, wine, and other beverages. Next, we will offer a 45 minute seated presentation on the Irish and the Scots who rest at Elmwood and their fascinating lives. Stories of influence, success, and good old pluck will be told!
Advance registration for this event is required. Registration is $20 per person. For more information, call 901-774-3212.
April Fools: Famous People Not Buried At Elmwood
Who are the famous people buried at Elmwood? Not these folks! Join us for a 90 minute walking tour of the cemetery and we'll visit sites where people like Andrew Jackson, Mick Jagger, and Abraham Lincoln are absolutely not buried. That's not to say they don't have a connection to Elmwood, though!
We'll start at 2PM at the historic Cottage. The cost is $20 per person. Good walking shoes are recommended. Call us with questions at 901-774-3212.
