“A Wonderful Step Back in Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

The history of the cemetery can be read in books, right down to the types of ironwork used in the fences. Each marker has a story. Very, very old markers, but names you will recognize. I just love this cemetery. I go there every time I visit Jefferson.

“Love exploring history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

My husband and I have been to Oakwood several times. Before our first visit we purchased the book "Angels of Oakwood: Jefferson's Historic Cemetery" by Mitchel Whitington. We found it to be a great companion on our visit! It is such a beautiful area and it was fun exploring and learning about the history of the persons buried there.
