Austin's Historic Oakwood Cemetery: Under the Shadow of the Texas Capitol

Book CoverThis book of informative narratives and photographs strives to create connections from Austin's start as a 19th century wild outpost to the 21st century city we know today. If you've visited Oakwood, you cannot miss the names Zilker, Kreisle, and Scarbrough on the monuments that line either side of Main Avenue. If you've explored a bit further, more familiar names appear along the shady lanes, and questions begin. Who were these people, why are their names all over town, what did they contribute to Austin? And who are the others, and are there nameless ones--surely there are many?

In our continuing preservation work in Oakwood Cemetery, we've learned its stories from the shades and shadows and we're eager to share them with you.

SAC has a limited remaining quantity of this book so please contact us at info@sachome.org if you are interesting in purchasing the book.
