“A hidden treasure a mile from downtown Atlanta”

Less than a mile from the heart of downtown Atlanta, 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.

The official description is wrong. This place is open to the public Monday through Friday 9-5 and til dusk on the weekends. It's ones of the cleanest most well kept cemeteries we've visited, but don't let that deter you if you like things old and dilapidated. The grounds are gorgeous, and the mausoleums are like small ornate mansions complete with stained glass windows and gargoyles on top.

Oakland cemetery is worth a visit. It was founded in 1850 and has beautiful architecture and gardens with Spanish moss and magnolias. Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones, Maynard Jackson and the founder of Rich's Department Store are buried here. There are many interesting stories and myths about the cemetery and tours are offered.
