With more than 70,000 souls interred in its hallowed grounds, it’s no mystery that Oakland Cemetery has its share of the surreal. Hear the stories that defy explanation and eerie events that have passed into local legend, from mysterious burials to deaths occurring under peculiar circumstances.
Explore the final resting place of Atlantans both prominent and unknown, but united in Oakland’s rich history. While not all of the endings are happy, these stories helped shape the Atlanta that lives on today.
This hour-long tour begins at 6:30 pm at the Visitors Center at the Bell Tower.
