Tips from locals
The oldest cemetery in Memphis. Stop in and get a headset for a self guided tour. You'll find some really fascinating history here!
Historic Elmwood Cemetery is the oldest active cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee. It was established in 1852 as one of the first rural garden cemeteries in the South. A funeral scene in Paramount's 1993 legal thriller The Firm was filmed here.
Elmwood Cemetery has some fascinated guided tours. It's a beautiful old cemetery with lots of history. Occasionally they project outdoor movies on the chapel wall for an interesting evening among the dead!

Best non-entertainment attraction in town. Holy Toledo!!! Civil War era burial ground with gorgeous grounds including statuary.
