A Beautiful Patina Angel standing guard....Guardian Angel, Elmwood Cemetery, Memphis, TN by Barbara Chichester.....
Elmwood Cemetery, Memphis, Tennessee.... Beneath the ancient elms, oaks and magnolias. In the company of the most honored and revered. Most famous and infamous. Most loved and feared. Among the veterans of every American war, even the Revolutionary War. Side-by-side with generals, senators, governors, mayors and madams......Elmwood was established as part of the Rural Cemetery Movement which swept the nation in the early to mid 1800s. It is a classic example of a garden cemetery with its park-like setting, sweeping vistas, shady knolls, large stands of ancient trees, and magnificent monuments. During the Victorian Era, the popular view of death became romanticized; death was now represented by symbols including angels, flowers, and plants. These ideas are reflected in the many magnificent monuments, mausoleums and life-sized figures.
Elmwood is the final resting place of those who created Memphis history and has emerged today as Memphis' finest and oldest active cemetery.
