Elmwood Cemetery, established in 1853, is Norfolk's second-oldest municipal cemetery. Its monuments and statues, some crafted by nationally prominent artisans, bear the motifs of Victorian funerary art and reflect the Egyptian, Gothic, Greek, Neo-Classical, and Romanesque Revival styles. Victims of the 1855 yellow fever epidemic, members of the Norfolk Light Artillery Blues, and Confederate and Union soldiers and sailors are interred here. Also buried here are Gov. Littleton Waller Tazewell, renowned sculptor William Couper, and Sarah Lee Odend'hal Fain, one of the first two women to serve in the Virginia General Assembly. Elmwood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
