Emory Cemetery
  Confederate Monument

The Holston Conference/Emory & Henry cemetery was established in the mid-1800s by the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church. The cemetery is for Holston Conference ministers and their families, Emory & Henry employees and members of the immediate Emory community. In addition to many ministers, former college presidents and professors, the cemetery also has the graves of more than 200 Confederate soliders.

Although most of the dearly departed in Emory are resting in peace, there are many stories of those who are not content and continue to wander in the area. For a brief sample of some of these tales, click here.
