Cemetery Under Construction for new roadways
Oakwood Cemetery of Joliet, Illinois was incorporated by Act of the General Assembly, February 18th, 1855. It is a tract of land comprising forty acres, more or less. It is located one mile east of Joliet.
The land seems by nature to have been intended for the very purpose to which it has been dedicated. It consists of an undulating terrace overlooking the valley through which Hickory Creek glides on its course, and ornamented by the magnificient foliage of hundreds of native forest trees, it is indeed one of the loveliest spots for silent repose that can be found in the west. The surface is one vast lawn, underlaid by a shallow covering of rich loam resting upon a bed of fine gravel, many feet in depth.
We at Afterlife Tours, Inc. wanted to let everyone know some additional facts about Oakwood Cemetery.
Over the years Oakwood Cemetery has had periods of being abandoned. During these times vandalism has occurred. Many of the headstones have been decimated, moved, and spray painted.
When the current owners took over the cemetery it was overgrown. Meticulous mowing took weeks, just to find the headstones.
The owners have been trying to place headstones back into their original location. However, the cemetery office had been destroyed by a fire decades ago. Most of the cemetery records were destroyed in that fire!
The current owners have asked us to try and determine where the misplaced headstones should be relocated.
As you may have read, many of the sensitives and psychics that were on our inaugural Moonlit Cemetery Experience stated that the residents of Oakwood Cemetery are Angry and Confused about the condition of their cemetery!
We know that many headstones are over the wrong people, many of the cemetery residents complain about the vandalism of the headstones of loved ones, in Oakwood Cemetery.
Afterlife Tours, Inc. is committed to correct these atrocious acts of desecration to Oakwood Cemetery. By attending one of our Moonlit Cemetery Experiences, you will help to preserve and restore this magnificent cemetery!
