Emerging from Darkness: Reconstruction Raleigh
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.
Tours are free, but we ask for a $5 donation per person; donations support the preservation of the cemetery and our educational programs.
Attendees are encouraged to bring water.
All tours will begin at 6:30.
This tour will begin at the front gate. Please park OUTSIDE the front gate of the cemetery on Oakwood Ave, Linden or Watauga.
