Historic Oakwood Cemetery and Mausoleum
The Historic Oakwood Cemetery and Mausoleum was the final resting place for the fallen Confederate soldiers 150 years ago. Over time, it has grown into a lush 102-acre garden that memorializes those we have lost and helps community members explore the past. While the cemetery still has plots available for those who want to secure a location, it also wants visitors to explore its tree-dotted landscape in search of a more evasive goal: knowledge. Tours explore the cemetery as a place that “pays respects to the dead while celebrating life” with a focus on the many oaks, cedars, and dogwoods that create natural serenity and the historic markers that show a glimpse of life all the way back to the Civil War.
