  • This site is well hidden, but worth a visit. Huge old cemetery, full of fascinating historical burial sites, unique statuary and information about historical event related to the cemetery residents.  more »
  • What an awesome experience. So much history. Beautiful head stones. I only wish they had more audio stop signs for every stop. Sometimes it was a bit confusing or hard to find the grave.  more »

  • My mother is buried under a beautiful tree there, away from traffic and next to an old family friend. My only complaint is that it's closed on sundays. Night time is understandable, , but there shouldn't be restrictions on when you can take flowers or visit a loved one in during the day. I wasn't able to visit my mothers gravesight on Mother's Day this year, for instance. Outside of that one thing, I couldn't be more thankful that she was able to be buried in such a beautiful and historic spot.
  • We drove around the place to see that all of the graves are huge and spectacular. Definitely 5 stars.
  • Went here with my son's field trip from school and was very impressed. Our guide had so much historic information we could've stayed there all day. There is so much history to learn about Memphis from these graves that you will have a better appreciation for this city.
  • Very historical cemetery. From some of the Memphis Founders, Confederate soldiers, to regular Memphis citizens, the grounds are beautiful and peaceful. Great place for photos.
  • Resting place for dear ones.
