Oakland Cemetery

Established in 1850, Historic Oakland Cemetery serves as the final resting place for over 70,000 Atlantans. But it’s much more than just a graveyard. Oakland Cemetery is Atlanta’s version of Paris’ famous Père Lachaise cemetery. Stroll under aged oak trees draped in Spanish moss and marvel at the Victorian-era marble mausoleums and grave markers. Historic figures like Margaret Mitchell and Bobby Jones are buried here alongside elaborate memorial statues and sculptures. Free 1-hour walking tours are offered on weekends at 10AM and 2PM if you want to learn more about Atlanta history. We recommend driving through Oakland Cemetery before taking a walking tour so you can get the full scope of the expansive grounds.
