Holiday Pop-up Tours At Oakwood Chapel



Do you have relatives coming from out of town for Thanksgiving? Are you wondering how you’ll amuse them after you’ve done all the turkey dinner and Black Friday stuff?  Here’s your chance to impress them with something completely different!

The Friends of Oakwood will offer guided tours of the Gardner Earl Memorial Chapel at 1pm and 2pm on Saturday November 24th for just $10. per person. Children under 12 are free. Registration is not required but each tour will be limited to 40 people with priority going to registrants. Please call 518-328-0090 with preferred tour time, name, phone, email and number of people. For Google map directions use 186 Oakwood Avenue, Troy.

The castle-like Earl Chapel is a National Historic Landmark, boasting spectacular stained-glass windows, oak carvings and marble mosaics.  You’ll hear the brief story of the young man who inspired this gorgeous Romanesque building and when you walk inside you’ll see why it is a popular venue for intimate weddings and social events as well as memorial services and funerals. 

The Friends of Oakwood is a non-profit volunteer group working to support the preservation and maintenance of the non-sectarian chapel and grounds of this still-active historic 19th C. cemetery.  New members are always welcome. Follow us on Facebook: Oakwood Cemetery Troy NY.
