Historic Oakdale Cemetery

Thank you for visiting historic Oakdale Cemetery. The gentle terrain and natural setting make this an especially peaceful site. Some of Sanford’s most prominent citizens are buried here, including members of the Goodall family.

Oakdale Cemetery was established in 1895 as the area’s first non-denominational memorial park. The cemetery grew under the leadership of its first president, Ernest M. Goodall. The park is currently run by Trustees of Oakdale Cemetery, a three-member board appointed by the Sanford Town Council.

The cemetery spreads over 44 acres. The Great Works River meanders through. The older section of the cemetery is nestled around a pond and traversed by a series of gently winding roads. A stone chapel, no longer in use, lends a quaint atmosphere to the cemetery. The newer section is more level and open, laid out with straight roads.
