Murder, Mayhem and Misadventure Walking Tour at Oakwood Cemetery

Save Austins Cemeteries

Please join us for the 12th annual Murder, Mayhem & Misadventure Walking Tour at Historic Oakwood Cemetery, Austin's historic "outdoor museum" founded in 1839.  The free tours cover the chilling, untimely deaths of residents of Oakwood portrayed by actors at their grave sites. The 45-minute tours highlight historical (not scary) events from the 1800s and start every 15-20 minutes between 10 am-3: Kids under adult supervision are welcome, but please leave your pets at home and wear closed-toed shoes. The tours are sponsored by Save Austin's Cemeteries so donations are welcome to support gravestone cleaning and restoration projects of 1800s monuments.
