Young Historians: Culture Conversations

Event Date:

Wednesday, May 24 at 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Experience a different side of Oakland Cemetery with Young Historians, Historic Oakland Foundation’s educational program for homeschool students and their families. Each program will explore a special topic and offer opportunities for students to learn in the unique setting of Oakland Cemetery.

Each two-hour program includes games, fun activities, and tours designed to engage and educate. Programs are grade-appropriate and educational activities correspond to Georgia Performance Standards.

Young Historians programs are from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Programs will be held inside the Visitors Center and outside on the grounds of Oakland Cemetery.

Culture Conversations
Wednesday, May 24
Walk through Oakland Cemetery and you’ll discover the final resting places of a diverse group of people who called Atlanta “home.” This program will examine and celebrate the different cultures, religions, and social organizations represented at Oakland Cemetery.
*Reservations open May 10.

Young Historians tickets are $6 for Historic Oakland Foundation members, $8 for non-members, and free for adults. Spaces are limited, so you must register to attend and you can purchase tickets when you arrive at the Visitors Center.

Due to limited space and demand, groups of six or more students must pay for the program in advance. Payment must be made at the time of registration, and will not be refunded for no-shows. We will refund payment up to a week before the program, or advance cancellations can apply their payment to a future Young Historians Homeschool Program.

To reserve a ticket or for more information, contact Marcy Breffle at mbreffle@oaklandcemetery.com or (404) 688-2107 ext. 16.
