MOUNT OLIVET CEMETERY Often referred to as a �timeless tradition offering modern choices,� Mount Olivet Cemetery has been a comforting place of final rest since 1856. The cemetery was chartered under an act of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, and was named to honor the Mount of Olives where, according to biblical scripture, Jesus Christ ascended to heaven. The cemetery is renown for its unusual crypts and monuments. One of the most outstanding features of the cemetery is the Confederate Circle—a plot of land located on the cemetery's highest point to honor the Confederate dead. More than 1,500 Confederate soldiers are buried in the circle, which was purchased by the Ladies' Memorial Society of Nashville. Vernon K. Stevenson, the first president of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad, is interred in an exact replica of Napoleon Bonaparte's tomb in Paris. Mount Olivet is pleased to offer the most innovative concepts in burial including traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, mausoleum entombment and cremation options. The Mount Olivet Lawn Crypt Garden offers economical memorialization combined with perpetual care. The stately Terrace Mausoleum provides families with another prestigious option of everlasting beauty and grace.
