Owner description: Step back in time in Atlanta's most tangible link to the past, Oakland Cemetery. This historical park is the final resting place for many Civil War soldiers, golfing legend Bobby Jones, and "Gone With the Wind" author Margaret Mitchell.

This is my first time visiting the cemetery and I must say I was a little bit nervous. Tourist and the Dead don't exactly mix, but this place is so well kept and welcoming. The flowers were marvelous and the headstones were awe-inspiring! I would definitely go there again. Make sure it's cooler out though because the wind tends to not flow well between the headstones.

Beautiful Historic cemetery with diverse population (albeit all dead). Took a general tour which started closer to 10:30 then 10 and lasted almost 2 hrs. The cemetery was bursting with blossoms and the grounds were being carefully tended by volunteers.

Many stories and a few famous people buried here including Margaret Mitchell. It’s now a city park so many people visit it. There is an ap you can download to give you a,guided tour. It’s not open at night.

I have been here half dozen times now. Special events and just day tripping. Still haven't seen the entire thing. Full of history and beauty and secrets and stories. Don't walk, run!
