Guided Tours

Finally! HOCPA is back in the tour business. Our first tour of the season will be on Sunday, July 25 at 2 o’clock.

Upcoming Dates

July 25th, 2:00pm

This tour is in Section 15. There are several stories there, but the big group is the Sedgwick family which includes Hazard (of Solvay process), Burlingame and Silsbee (yes, the chapel guy)!


August 15th, 2:00pm



Enter the Comstock entrance, and follow the tour signs.

We go rain or shine, but not if there’s thunder and lightning.

All tours are free of charge, but we appreciate any donation to our organization in support of our efforts to promote, preserve, and protect Oakwood Cemetery.
