Oakland Cemetery

For 175 years, Russellville Oakland Cemetery has been committed to service of the community and the final resting place for many of the area's residents.

Oakland hosts several events throughout the year, including Decoration Day, Symbolism and Interpretation Tour, and Fall Tours of some of the more notable persons. Private tours are by appointment only.

These are free events, however donations are accepted to assist in the preservation and beautification projects of Oakland.

We are inviting the community to come and participate in Decoration/Cleanup Day here at Oakland.  Once again this year as last, the entire month of May 2022 has been declared by our office to be our official time for Decoration and Cleanup at Russellville Oakland Cemetery.


Weather permitting, we will be holding a small demonstration/workshop for the proper cleaning of gravestones and markers.  If you would like to participate, you may contact the cemetery office by phone: 479-857-4074 or 479-967-3186 (city attorney office) for further information.


All pets must be on a leash and pet owners/parents are required to clean up after their pets. No alcohol in the cemetery.  Place trash/rubbish in the trash receptacle (near the flagpole).  Removal of items (unless by staff or a family member) or damage caused to any grave may result in criminal charges.


If you need assistance in locating the grave of a loved one, you may use our website for information at Grave Discover    You can call/text to set up a private appointment: 479-857-4074.


Thank you and welcome to Decoration Day & Cleanup Month at Russellville Oakland Cemetery.
