The cemetery began in 1850 and was Atlanta’s first Graveyard known as the City Burial Place. It started as a 6 acre site, but nearby civil war casualties created a rapid demand for plots, expanding the cemetery to the 48 beautifully cultivated acres we see today. Oakland’s residents embrace using the park as an ongoing celebration of life with events like Tunes from the Toombs. Just a few steps away from the Resting place of Golfer Bobby Jones lies a building known as “The Jane”, which is named after the golfer’s trusty putter, “Calamity Jane”.
