Cost: $18

Explore Oakland’s botanical, secular, and religious symbols during an after-hours Symbolism of Oakland tour.

The Victorian fixation on symbolism is reflected in the grave markers and gardens of Oakland Cemetery. Whether it be carving a crown (honor) into stone or planting marigolds (grief) on a family lot, each choice was deliberately made in hopes of reflecting the dead’s personality, disposition, relationships, and life.
