The Oakwood Cemetery is a resting place for many notable individuals in Austin’s history, including philanthropist and preservationist Rebecca Jane Fisher and author Annie Webb Blanton. While ghost hunting seems like the go-to activity in Oakwood Cemetery, take a different approach by visiting the Oakwood Cemetery Chapel to learn more about Austin’s heritage. The 100-year-old gravestones are worth more than a quick look while enjoying a quiet walk throughout the area.
Six million bones and skulls from the late 19th century! It is considered one of the creepiest places in the world and also one of the largest graveyards. The tunnels are over 200 miles long but only a small section is for tourism. Allow 45 minutes to walk through. Enjoy!
