Historic Oakland Cemetery

Founded by the city in 1850, Historic Oakland Cemetery is a reflective park with lush greenery and architectural monuments for its 70,000 burial sites. Knowledgeable tour guides share tidbits of Atlanta’s history during tours, paying visits to the gravesite of Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With the Wind, and Maynard Jackson, Atlanta’s first African American mayor. Architecture in a variety of styles rises across the grounds, including mausoleums with Tiffany Studios stained-glass windows and gigantic bronze urns. The stone-hewn Lion of Atlanta marks the burial ground of 3,000 unknown Confederate soldiers. The hanging bows of oak, magnolia, and dogwood trees shade visitors, surrounded by the colorful, fragrant camellias.
