EXPERIENCE: From the time you drive through the Entry Bridge, you will encounter over 100 years of Memphis' history. Beneath the ancient elms, oaks and magnolias lies the most famous and infamous. Generals, senators, governors, mayors and madams rest in this 80-acre cemetery. Although there is no charge to visit Elmwood, there is a fee for docent-led tours of the cemetery grounds. Walking tours and driving tours are free. You can rent audio tours which include a map notating some of the common symbols found on some tombstones.
