Jason Church at Oakland Cemetery

Jason Church at Oakland Cemetery

NCPTT’s Mary Striegel, Jason Church, and Sarah Jackson met with Mr. Tim Wachtel, a planner with the Shreveport Public Assembly & Recreation Department, to discuss the historic concrete retaining walls of Oakland Cemetery. The cemetery, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was officially opened 1847 and its fence and walls were added in 1905. NCPTT staff conducted a conditions assessment and made suggestions for treatment.
