Historic Structure Report provides historical context and physical condition of the women’s and men’s comfort stations at Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta’s largest historic cemetery. The comfort stations were constructed in 1908, fifty-eight years after the opening of Oakland, in order to provide adequate public restroom facilities for the large crowds who visited the cemetery during its early history. A group effort has been made to research and document the history of the two comfort buildings, assess their current status, and make recommendations for treatment.
