This is not your ordinary cemetery - it's a confederate cemetery, a bucolic place to visit,and once a year they have a lantern walk where civil war scenes are recreated and stories told.

A real enlightening and learning experience! Most of Raleigh's earliest leaders, socialites and business people are buried here!
the Cemetery is also very beautiful and well maintained! You will be glad you visited this Historic place! Also, makes one reverent and appreciative of those that have come before us!

[Sorry for the bad pun.] Oakwood Cemetery, one of the largest in Raleigh, is also wonderfully tended and full of ancient and historical monuments. Its meandering roadways are good hoofing for runners and bicyclists, and it has abundant green space for picnics and just meditating. I WOULD be caught dead there.

Jimmy V's headstone will take your breath away. The confederate army section is also impressive. Neat creek through the property.
