Tours

Due to the pandemic, HOCPA is unable to hold our monthly in-person tours. Instead, this page will serve as a virtual guide in hopes individuals who are able to visit the cemetery will do so and partake in their own guided tour.

August

Our August tour is a self-guided tree trail created by board member, Hilary Donohue!

 

Hilary identified 20 unique trees throughout Oakwood Cemetery and has installed name plaques on each tree to help you find and identify the trees.

 

The plaques were purchased by HOCPA thanks to your generous donations that fund our mission and projects such as this.

 

You can review photographs of the trees below and also a map of the trail. Happy Hunting!
