1. Mr. Brooks Marker
Inscription.  Oakland Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Shreveport, appeared in the film Mr. Brooks starring Kevin Costner and Dane Cook. In addition to citizens of the community, the cermetery holds approximately 800 people who died during the yellow fever epidemic of 1873. They are buried in a mass grave that until recently remained unmarked. During the filming of the "graveyard scene” in Mr. Brooks, the city was concerned about disturbing the large grave. Therefore, the film office had a plot of land in Oakland Cemetery strictly designated for filming scenes where digging is required. It is located in the mid-section on the north side.
