Red Wing`s Oakwood Cemetery is one of Minnesota’s most historic cemeteries.  You will visit the final resting places of some of Red Wing’s most notable names including Reverend Joseph Hancock, Abraham E Welch, T.B. Sheldon and more. Learn the difference between male and female Victorian mourning customs, the meanings behind tombstone symbolism, and what life was like for a 19th century Red Wing resident.
