Oakwood Cemetery Series
CO-DIRECTED BY: George Jack and Nathalie Ray
A place of unique significance, meaning and value to Raleigh, Wake County, the state of North Carolina, and thousands of citizens for more than 140 years, Historic Oakwood Cemetery provides a beautiful park-like setting for the final resting place of a fascinating cross section of over 22,000 of the area’s citizenry, including many prominent city, state and national leaders.
Among the many beautiful monuments and statuary within the cemetery are those of seven governors, five United States Senators, eight Supreme Court Chief Justices of North Carolina, four Civil War generals, two Secretaries of the United States Navy, numerous Raleigh mayors, and thousands of other individuals, some widely known and others known only to their families, but each life’s story constitutes a part of the interesting and colorful history of Raleigh, Wake County and North Carolina.
