Elmwood Cemetery's grounds are open every day from 8 am till 4:30 pm. There is no admission charge.
Elmwood Cemetery’s staff has devised a way to safely share the cemetery’s history with students in the upcoming school year. We are prepared to make available live Zoom presentations that will cover all the information students would learn on a walking tour! We have speakers who can present Elmwood Cemetery 101 (our basic youth education tour), African American History of Elmwood, Yellow Fever History of Elmwood, and The Women of Elmwood. These presentations can be made almost any time of day! Please email Kelly Sowell at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your Zoom presentation. The cost is $5 per student.
We are offering small tours for students for $10 per student. There will be no more than 40 people allowed, including students, chaperones, teachers, and bus drivers. Beyond 40 attendees, anyone else must remain in their cars for the duration of the tour. Groups of 40 will be divided into at least two groups. Masks and social distancing will be required.
Payment for any presentation or walking tour can be made in a single payment either by a check (mailed in is fine), or by credit card over the phone. We will not be accepting individual payments at this time. We will be happy to email an invoice if needed.
