I could spend hours here wandering around. The oldest cemetery in Knoxville. Lots of shade and a very good map of the layout.

Very interesting place to visit and stroll around. Lots of old cemetery markers and statues. The downside is that it is in a homeless persons area, so I strongly recommend going only during daylight hours and only in groups.

This is a must-see for cemetery lovers and history buffs. The "roads" are narrow and you can just imagine horse and carriages coming thru here in another era. Beautiful and a great place to spend some real time to peruse the many wonderful headstones.
