Park Offers Last Cemetery Walking Tour of the Season


Andrew Johnson National Cemetery. April showers bring spring flowers, but they also force the cancellation of outdoor educational walks. Staff at Andrew Johnson National Historic Site is proud to reoffer the final walking tour of the Andrew Johnson National Cemetery for this season.

The tour, postponed in April due to rain, has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 8th at 10:00 am, and will begin outside the Andrew Johnson Cemetery Lodge, located at 121 Monument Avenue, in Greeneville. Walking tours take approximately an hour and a half and involve walking on uneven ground and up/down stairs. Sturdy walking shoes are advised. Participants are requested to wear facemasks.

The walking tour, the last offered until next winter, is free; however, parking is limited, so reservations are required. Please call the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site at 423-638-3551 for more information and/or reservations.

Andrew Johnson National Cemetery is administered by the Andrew Johnson National Historic Site, which is one of the 423 parks in the National Park System. To learn more about parks and the National Park Service programs in America’s communities visit www.nps.gov.
