Saint Paul history: Oakland Cemetery

A growing city doesn't just need space for new residents to live, it also needs a place to bury its dead. Saint Paul's Oakland Cemetery was founded in 1853 to meet the mortuary needs needs of the growing city. Originally established well outside the city's borders, it is now surrounded by urban life.
