Chartered in 1852, this landscaped 165-acre Victorian-era burying ground contains graves of the movers and shakers of Wilmington. The eloquent epitaphs and symbolic funerary art tell stories of those who lie beneath and bring them to life for the living. The graves represent veterans from all wars and all branches of service, politicians, mayors, congressmen, artists, architects, writers, developers, merchants, planters, fraternal order members, insurance men, exporters, immigrants, victims of Yellow Fever epidemics, wives, mothers, infants and children, and a female Confederate spy, Mrs. Rose O'Neal Greenhow, Confederate Secret Service Agent who drowned off Fort Fisher while running the blockade. The Oakdale Cemetery is also the home of The Confederate Memorial Monument and tours are offered year-round so make sure to check out the calendar of events! Free and open to the public
