Oaklawn Cemetery Location & Board of Directors

Oaklawn is located just northeast of Decatur.
You turn north off the Hwy 380 bypass
on the first exit west of FM 51.
Follow the signs on Cemetery Road
for a little over a mile and
you’ll come to the brick entry gate
on the right side of the road.

 

 

To the left is a picture of the north entry gate.

        At about forty acres and over 4800 headstones, Oaklawn is by far the largest cemetery in Wise County.

        The Board of Directors of the Decatur Cemetery Association oversees the operation for both Sand Hill and Oaklawn Cemeteries.
