Walking Tour of Historic Oakwood Cemetery

Let's take a walking tour of historic Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh. The tour is called "Beechwood and Beyond." It will be led by historian Bruce Miller and will explore the Beechwood section of the cemetery.

About Historic Oakwood Cemetery: (http://www.historicoakwoodcemetery.org/aboutus.asp)

"A place of unique significance, meaning and value to Raleigh, Wake County, the state of North Carolina, and thousands of citizens for more than 136 years. Historic Oakwood Cemetery provides a beautiful park-like setting for the final resting place of a fascinating cross section of nearly 20,000 of the area's citizenry, including many prominent city, state and national leaders.

Among the many beautiful monuments and statuary within the cemetery are those of seven governors, five United States Senators, eight Supreme Court Chief Justices of North Carolina, four Civil War generals, two Secretaries of the United States Navy, numerous Raleigh mayors, and thousands of other individuals, some widely known and others known only to their families, but each life’s story constitutes a part of the interesting and colorful history of Raleigh, Wake County and North Carolina."

*The tour is free, but registration is encouraged. To register, call[masked] or e-mail [masked]. Please remember to register if you RSVP yes!
