Discover the period gardens, history, customs, architecture and art that give Oakland Cemetery its distinctive character. Founded in 1850, the cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a museum of Atlanta's history with more than 70,000 stories to tell — stories filled with victories and tragedies both beautiful and stunning (including stories about Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones and Maynard Jackson). Visit the cemetery to take a stroll under the sweetly scented magnolias, study the intricately carved monuments, or take a tour with one of the skillful, enthusiastic and highly informative guides. Tours depart from the Visitor Center/Museum Shop at the Bell Tower building, and no reservations are required.
