About Oakland Cemetery:
Founded in 1850, Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery spans 48 acres of gardens, wildlife and sculpture. Oakland is the final resting place for 70,000 people, including author Margaret Mitchell, 27 Atlanta mayors, six former governors, Civil War generals and soldiers, and thousands of unmarked graves. Oakland Cemetery offers critical green space for recreation and serves as a cultural resource for lifelong learners who come to study history, art, architecture, archaeology, horticulture, photography and more. Working in partnership with the City of Atlanta, Historic Oakland Foundation works to preserve, restore, enhance and share Oakland Cemetery. Visit www.oaklandcemetery.com for more details.

This tour is presented in partnership with Historic Oakland Foundation.
