About Oakdale Memorial Gardens Inc.
Oakdale Memorial Gardens was established in 1856 and is an independent, non-profit cemetery located on 78+ acres along Eastern Avenue in the heart of Davenport, Iowa. It is one of the Quad Cities' oldest and most beautiful cemeteries, boasting century-old oaks, gently rolling hills and knolls, and a beautiful reflecting pond near the cemetery entrance.

The renowned cornet player's grave site receives thousands of visitors each year, bringing international recognition to the Quad Cities and Oakdale Memorial Gardens. Incidentally, Bix's brother, Charles Beiderbecke, was Oakdale's sexton at one time.
