About Us

Join us for the Oakwood Cemetery History Walk on June 3rd, 2017 as a part of our anniversary celebration!

There will be two separate walking tours. The first one begins at 10:00 am and the other to follow at 2:00pm. Tours will begin promptly so we ask that you arrive 30 minutes early to allow time for parking and to be assigned to a tour group. Parking will be available within the cemetery. Please note that this is a two-hour walking tour of about a mile over rolling terrain. The Sharon Historical Society will highlight nine famous people/families interred at the cemetery, including Lena Miller, the “Gypsy Queen”. We hope you can join us for this historic event!


Oakwood Cemetery Association was established in 1866 by prominent businessmen and good citizens of our community.  The original track of thirty-two acres that had begun as a rural cemetery has increased to nearly fifty acres that has served the community for the last three centuries.

From past founders; E. J. Fish, T. J. Porter, Dr. J. M. Irvine, Samuel Kimberly, C. Q. Carver, Thomas Bowden, E. A. Wheeler and James Westermann to our present day directors, Oakwood Cemetery has been serving the needs of the community.

With acre upon acre of trees and flowering plants, the picturesque rolling landscape makes Oakwood Cemetery a very serene and tranquil place for your loved one’s final resting place.

With thousands of select burial sites to pick from, Oakwood Cemetery will be an active cemetery well into this century.
