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.

Exhibitions

  • Chasing Dreams : Baseball & Becoming American

    This exhibition weaves together America’s favorite pastime, baseball, and its role in creating a national identity. Through films, footage, photographs, and a database of American Jewish ballplayers, Chasing Dreams: Baseball & Becoming American explores how baseball historically played a crucial role in understanding, and sometimes challenging, what it means to be American.

  • Vedem Underground: The Secret Magazine of Terezin : Vedem Underground

    The exhibition examines the historic, cultural, and artistic legacy of VEDEM, a literary magazine written by courageous Jewish boys imprisoned at Terezin, a concentration camp and ghetto in German-occupied Czechoslovakia. The magazine was the only underground publication to be regularly produced by Nazi prisoners.
