Both serene and profound, this is the perfect place to escape the city and clear one's head. Come experience 140 years of Raleighite history.

The Oakwood Cemetery is one of the most beautiful spots within Raleigh city limits. You can stroll through on your own, join the popular First Friday Flashlight Walks or sign up for a tour. Just outside of downtown, this sprawling park serves not only as a resting place, but as a historic site and urban haven for the living. In addition to some stunning statuary and interesting gravestones, a small creek cuts through one end creating the perfect spot for a picnic or reading. The history of North Carolina is intertwined throughout Oakwood Cemetery, and the significance of these graves is palpable upon arrival.
