About Oberlin Cemetery
Designated as an official City of Raleigh historic landmark in February of 2013, Oberlin Cemetery is located in the heart of Oberlin Village and is the burial site of some of the most prominent members of the African American community. There are believed to be over 600 graves, some still marked by gravestones and ornate markers. The Friends of Oberlin Village is the grassroots community organization committed to preserving these grounds and recording the legacies of the persons laid to rest there. The group offers a way for the community to come together and help continue to care for this historic site.
