than a mile from the heart of downtown Atlanta,
Oakland Cemetery, a hidden treasure, a secret sanctuary, welcomes you. This garden cemetery, founded in
1850, is the final resting place of many of Atlanta's settlers, builders and most noted citizens like Bobby Jones,
Margaret Mitchell and Maynard Jackson. It is also a

showplace of sculpture and architecture and a botanical
preserve with ancient oaks and magnolias.
Here in this peaceful place the full scope of the city's
rich and fascinating history unfolds before you. Historic
Oakland Foundation offers 17 special topic tours that
explore a range of subjects, from the African American
grounds to Victorian symbolism and beyond.
