Oakwood Cemetery and our other burial grounds have been a part of the Nunda community since the 1820's. They are the resting places for our family, friends, and forefathers as well as a significant historical resource. As with all historical resources, they must be cared for and protected! The monument in the upper left photo has been fixed, but there is much more to do! We need your help so join us!
