Step back in time to post civil war Raleigh, hear about the founding of Oakwood Cemetery, learn about local innovators, politicos, troublemakers and the citizens who built a future in a recovering city.

Tour subject matter and theming is designed for adult audiences, the cemetery asks that attendees are over 16 and able to walk 1 mile over uneven terrain with limited shade.
