Elmwood Cemetery

Elmwood Cemetery is Memphis’ oldest active cemetery. You have to drive through the hood and over a bridge (kinda like going to Grandma’s house only different) and voila! You’re transported to an hidden oasis full of trees and greenery and peacefulness. There are a lot of trees! If I remember correctly I believe they’re a few tree species away from becoming a certified arboretum. It kinda reminded me of Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn. I highly recommend going on a tour. I went on an after hours tour with Kimberly as the guide and it was fantastic. She’s a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the history of her cemetery. And there’s booze! I highly recommend!
