Elmwood is the most historic ground in this part of the world. The dramatic Entry Bridge, the Carpenter-Gothic Office Cottage– the entire 80-acre, active cemetery – are all on the National Register of Historic Places, and Elmwood is also an official Bird Sanctuary and Arboretum.

Elmwood is the final resting place for Memphians of all generations. It is a nonprofit organization that serves the Metropolitan Memphis community as a cemetery open to all, an outdoor history museum, a Level II Arboretum, a special events location, and an acclaimed genealogy research center. Elmwood employs passionate people who work to bring the highest quality and best kind of care to a very old, and very beautiful, Victorian Age cemetery.

We need your help. To care for this institution is an expensive feat. Your donation helps to secure this sacred place. Please give to Elmwood so that we can continue to maintain this property for the next hundred years, and beyond.
