Historic Oakland Foundation needs your help!
Historic Oakland Foundation works hard in pursuit of its mission to restore Oakland Cemetery and enhance its beautiful Victorian gardens. Historic Oakland Foundation usually welcomes tens of thousands of visitors to the Cemetery through its walking tours, K-12 educational programming, plant sales, and special events. All of these activities are an integral part of our mission to share Oakland Cemetery with the public and generate revenue that is critical to our ability to carry out our work of preserving and restoring Oakland Cemetery.
While we haven’t been able to host visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a significant loss of expected revenue, we have been fortunate to be able to offer Oakland as a place for respite, relaxation, and socially distanced recreation. During this period of separation, the park is seeing more visitors than ever, and we are pleased that Historic Oakland Foundation’s work has allowed Oakland to remain an amenity for all Atlantans.
