In 1908, a group of Protestant ministers who represented twelve local churches founded The Oakwood Cemetery Association and purchased the land for Oakwood Memorial Park which was once part of a Spanish Land Grant. In 1947 the local IOOF Lodge purchased the property from the Association and continued to meticulously maintain it, allowing nature's beauty to flourish.
This beautiful location was designed to keep the beauty and tranquility of nature in view. In addition, the Chapel's after service reception area provides a tasteful setting and the convenience of ample parking.
