Oakwood Cemetery is owned by the City of Bedford.
Oakwood Cemetery was Bedford's second cemetery, being located adjacent to Longwood Cemetery. It was added just prior to the Civil War and was developed on the grounds to the south and east of Longwood.
The last section of Oakwood was designated as the Elks National Cemetery and served as the burial place for residents of the Elks National Home from the early 1900s until the Elks Home constructed its own cemetery around 1960.
