Event Details

Our Oakwood Cemetery Tours: Unsung Heroes return THIS Saturday, June 8, 2024, with two identical tour sessions, one starting at 10:00 am and one starting at 2:00 pm. It is suggested to arrive 30 minutes early to allow for parking, registration, and walking to the orientation area. No vehicle traffic will be allowed inside the Cemetery, other than directed parking in assigned areas.

The guided tours will include an orientation at the Veteran’s Bandstand followed by stops at 10 points of interest throughout the Cemetery. Escorts will lead attendees in small groups to these preplanned stops. A historic interpreter will then provide biographical information about the person(s) interred at each location.

New stops will be on this tour! Included on the tour are the Buhl Chapel and mausoleum, the McDowell family mausoleum, Billy Whitla “The Kidnapped Boy,” avid historian, writer, and world-traveler Sarah Graham Morrison, musician Ty Longley, relocated West Hill graves, the famous Gypsy Queen, prominent African American leaders, veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice, and chocolatier Pete Daffin and his family.

These tours are $10 PER ATTENDEE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. No advanced reservations are needed. Please bring $10 cash or a check. A special souvenir booklet detailing the tour stops and other interesting facts about Oakwood Cemetery will be provided to participants.
