Leave a Lasting Legacy
Help pave the way for preservation and restoration at Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery for decades to come.
Atlantans now have the opportunity to help pave the way for preservation and restoration at Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery for decades to come. As groundbreaking for Historic Oakland Foundation’s new Visitors Center nears, the Foundation invites the public to leave a lasting legacy by purchasing an engraved brick to be installed on a plaza outside the new building’s main entrance.
Your brick will be installed on a plaza outside the entrance to the new Oakland Cemetery Visitors Center where it will become a permanent part of Oakland’s history. Memorialize a loved one, honor a friend, or simply acknowledge your family’s valued support of Historic Oakland Foundation.
Construction on the new Visitors Center is expected to begin in summer 2023, and HOF hopes to have the bricks installed on the plaza by the end of 2024.
This brick sale is part of Historic Oakland Foundation’s $12.5 million Living History capital campaign, the most significant fundraising effort in the organization’s 46-year history. With funds raised during the Campaign, the Foundation will construct a new Visitors Center, rehabilitate the 1899 Bell Tower on Oakland’s Grounds, and restore the six-acre East Hill area of the historic cemetery.
