Historic Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta

Posted: December 30, 2010 in Cemeteries -USA, For Genealogists


This website details the history of a cemetery that is apart of American history.  Started in 1850, this historical grounds are unique to the Atlanta area as well as the country.

Its website is truly neat as well, gives concise information for anyone wishing to visit, do research and even take a walking tour.  One of the few places that have a gift shop of its own.

If you’re in the Atlanta area – I’d visit this place just to see what an elaborate cemetery it is if anything else.

Other things they have volunteer opportunities and a newsletter.

Next week – a pet cemetery!
