Historic Elmwood Cemetery

The Smith mausoleum in 9th Street Pinewood was built by W.W. Smith, a successful African American architect whose mausoleum characterizes his unique design and style. Also, the Jones mausoleum, which is located a short distance from the Smith mausoleum, was also designed by W.W. Smith.​​

The first recorded burials here date back to 1855. Many of Charlotte’s prominent citizens are buried in Elmwood, including the following:   

  • Governor Cameron Morrison

  • Dr. Annie Alexander, the first female physician in the south

  • Phillip Lance Van Every, who started Lance, Inc. and was a two-term mayor

  •  John Motley Morehead, U S. senator and congressman 

  • Randolph Scott, movie actor

​An array of unique and elaborate headstones and monuments can be found in Elmwood, such as the Severs log cabin, which was carved from one 15-ton piece of granite.​​ ​The cemetery also offers beautiful views of uptown Charlotte.
