“Interesting cemetery”

We only drove around the cemetery as it was closing soon but it was very interesting to see how the graves were set up and the old tombstones. Worth a stop if you have some extra time.

The cemetery is a great place to walk and enjoy the flowers and historical graves and sculptures. Kid friendly. The "friends" of the cemetery offer horse drawn tours that are great!

Didn't think I would enjoy touring an old cemetery but Oakdale is different than any I've seen before...The tombs and elaborate headstones of many of Wilmingtons most famous and historical figures can be found here, the beautiful wrought iron gates and fences surrounding many of the family plots and gravesites are a tribute to the great craftmanship that you see throughout the city of Wilmington. A must see!

The Confederate section and the Yellow Fever Hill are awe-inspiring. We found the gravesites of some of our ancestors.

I have family buried in Oakdale, but even if I didn't I would adore this tranquil place. Lots of history.
