A magnolia tree root system.
We even have "family" resting in Oakland Cemetery.


In the late 19th century, Oakland was a popular
destination for Sunday carriage rides and picnics.  Families tended the plots of loved ones creating an assortment of lovely gardens. 


This is the oldest Jewish Cemetery
in Atlanta started in 1860.
Saturday in the Park . . . . . 


A day of music and spirits benefiting Historic Oakland Cemetery!
