The Historic Oakland Cemetery basks in its beautiful gardens, sculptures, and architecture with displays of elegant funerary art. The 90-minute guided walking tour takes the cemetery’s visitors on a serene jaunt through the historic graveyard to see its sights and to listen to stories of its remarkable history. The cemetery forms an outdoor museum of Atlanta’s history, with residents representing all of the area's social classes and ethnic backgrounds. Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With the Wind, rests in Oakland, along with many other notable people, including Bishop Wesley John Gaines, former slave and founder of Morris Brown College; Ivan Allen Jr., mayor of Atlanta from 1962–1970; and nearly 3,000 unknown soldiers.
