Longwood Cemetery served as the town's cemetery until the early 1800's. Oakwood Cemetery was added just prior to the Civil War and was developed on the grounds to the south and east of Longwood Cemetery. Liberty played an important role in the Civil War. Over five hundred Civil War soldiers are buried in the cemeteries.
The last section of Oakwood was designated as the Elks National Cemetery and served as the burial place for residents of the Elks National Home from 1903 until the Elks home constructed its own cemetery in 1980. Cemetery records indicate there are 1118 Elks resting here.
