Two women stand at the entrance gates of White Oak Cemetery. An older woman is dressed in a black long skirt and muttonsleeve blouse. She is holding an open umbrella in her right hand and is using it to shield herself from the sun. The other woman is dressed in a white long skirt and full sleeve blouse with black bow ties at the waist and neck. She is holding an unopened umbrella in her left hand. The cast iron gates of the cemetery have “White Oak Cemetery” lettered within the gates. On the left the pecked stone entrance pillar is visible. A fast moving dog is visible as a blur leaving the cemetery. Behind the gates a pathway winds off to the left and open grassland and decorative flowers and trees make up the cemetery. In the far distance is a heavily wooded area.


This is the original entrance to the White Oak Cemetery dedicated November in 1895. The area was used as a park by citizens in the 1890s. Many small cedar trees can be seen in this photo. The cemetery was renamed Chattanooga Memorial Park in 1994.
