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.
Walk With Me
We hear it frequently: "I've never been to Elmwood."
We're inviting you to change that.
Join us for an introduction to Elmwood Cemetery on the Saturday afternoon of your choosing (March 16th or 23rd), starting at 1:00 pm. We'll invite you in to the Cottage to check in and then set out on foot for a 90 minute glimpse into Memphis from long ago. You'll see ancient trees and magnificent monuments as you stroll with your tour guide down winding carriage paths. Tour Guide Amanda Knight will share stories of old Memphis and the early days of Elmwood.
Pick your date and we'll see you soon. Comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing are highly recommended. Need specific information? Call 901-774-3212
*NOTE: THE TOUR PREVIOUSLY SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 9TH AT 1PM HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER CONCERNS
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.
