Oakwood Cemetery is a nonsectarian rural cemetery located in northeastern Troy, New York. It was established in 1848 and was designed as a park during the rural cemetery movement of the mid-19th century, designed to serve upscale clientele. The cemetery is owned and operated by Troy Cemetery Association. Oakwood Cemetery is both graveyard and garden and spreads over 280 acres of wooded parkland north and east of the City of Troy and the Village of Lansingburgh. The grounds of Oakwood feature beautiful trails, several ponds, sculptures, and stonework. Oakwood commands views of the Hudson River Valley which serve as a spectacular backdrop to the history of its "residents." The cemetery is open every day from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
