248 Oakland Ave, SE. Atlanta, GA 30312
We're heading to Historic Oakland Cemetery to take the tour and then on to lunch. This is the oldest cemetery in Atlanta and has many famous "residents".
The best way to find the entrance is to get to the SW end of the cemetery on Memorial Drive. Turn onto Oakland Ave and look for a small cemetery road that goes into the park. There is no entrance fee for the cemetery, but the tour we're taking costs $10 person.
You can park inside the cemetery or in the lot just outside the main gate. Tom recommends parking near the visitor center inside the park. If you park inside the cemetery just pull your vehicle off to the right of any asphalt-paved roadway, with enough space for other cars to pass.
We will gather just outside the visitors center at 9:30 and take a guided tour at 10:00am sharp.
We have made lunch arrangements at Six Feet Under across the street from the cemetery, so we'll head over after the tour.
We have two groups looking to form for the drive to the cemetery:
- Anyone interested in meeting somewhere on 141 to head down mostly back roads call Ginger @ 864-616-9655.
- Anyone interested in leading from Woodstock, call Judy at 404-226-4399.After the tour, we'll head to lunch.
