Through historical tours, exhibits, events and memorial services, the Oakwood Cemetery Chapel provides a place to connect, heal and reflect, that is open to all.
The lives that built Austin are at Oakwood Cemetery. We are united here in search of love, life and meaning.
The Chapel is a visitor center where we can, as an act of remembrance, learn about our cultural heritage through the people who were buried in the surrounding cemetery. Genealogy reveals our forebears' influence on the past and future. We share and collect individual narratives to create a framework for the collective human story.The Oakwood Cemetery Chapel is a starting point for learning about culture and history through limited programming chosen through respectful and responsive community input. The Chapel accommodates events, prioritizing memorial services, in a space where everyone is valued. Recognizing Austin’s history of inequities, we seek to include stories of all Austin communities, reconciling our past with our present.
