Chartered in 1852, this landscaped 165-acre Victorian-era cemetery has many beautiful headstones with eloquent epitaphs and symbolic funerary art telling stories of those who lie beneath. 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 with tours are offered year-round with self-guided tours. Free and open to the public.
