A 1926 St. Petersburg City Directory lists Oaklawn at 16th Street South and 3rd Ave South. Based on various sources, Oaklawn was most likely founded in the later 19th century. In the late 1940's, this cemetery was removed to make way for the construction of the Laurel Park Housing Project. The cemetery's burials were moved to Greenwood Cemetery and Royal Palm Cemetery.
