Living Tree Monument
Oakland Cemetery has a living tree monument in the GAR Section of the Cemetery. There are also two vases near the tree – one of the vases has a plaque. The first 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. 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. The winter photo was taken 1/5/08 - the others 8/24/10.
