Barrel Tomb

Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, Georgia

Tombs, like gravestones, come in many shapes and sizes and are made of many types of materials.  These tombs constructed of brick, are called barrel tombs characterized by the rounded tops.  They are differentiated by the designs of the face of the tombs, square versus ornamented, and the insets that have the name of the deceased inscribed in them.
