Living Tree Monument
Oakland Cemetery has a living tree monument, dedicated on May 30, 1896, in the GAR Section of the Cemetery. The second photo shows the monument in the background with the “Wreaths across America” program which eventually plans to put a wreath by every veteran’s tombstone over the holidays. There are 27 CW Veterans buried nearby. There is also a plaque dedicated by the Daughters of Union Veterans. Oakland Cemetery is on the north side of town – turn right (east) off Governor Street onto Brown Street to the entrance. The monument is directly right of the entrance by the flagpole. The winter photo was taken 1/5/08, the living tree photo on 8/24/10 and the photos of the plaque on 8/3/20.
