Description

This lovely 144-year-old, 80-acre cemetery is a wonderful place to go on a warm afternoon. Huge shade trees protect the most interesting collection of graves and gravestones in the city. Elaborate Victorian monuments pay homage to city founders such as Robert Church, the first black millionaire in Memphis, as well as Mayor E.H. "Boss" Crump, 19 generals from the Confederate Army and yellow fever victims felled by the mosquitoes that used to thrive on the river banks.
