"Historic Resting Place for Atlanta's Famous"

One of the largest cemeteries in Atlanta, Oakland Cemetery is located in the heart of downtown, this bucolic expanse is a constant reminder of the city's history. Dating from the 1850s, the cemetery was the final destination for all Atlantans until 1884, when private burial grounds began appearing throughout the city. The oldest section is near the main entrance, where legendary golfer Bobby Jones and author Margaret Mitchell are interred. This expansive 48 acres (190,000 sq meters) beautiful garden now houses sculptures, an art gallery, a green space and serves as a prominent wedding venue for the city.
