BLACK ANGEL IN IOWA CITY’S OAKLAND CEMETERY
The black angel of Oakland Cemetery is an 8 and a half foot tall burial monument for the Feldevert family, erected in the cemetery in 1912. It has been the source of many stories and legends in Iowa City. 
The stories are mostly connected to the mysterious change in color that the angel took, turning from a golden bronze to a dark black. Most have explained this as the natural oxidation of the metal but not surprisingly, other explanations have surfaced, blaming evil acts, freak storms, infidelity and even murder.
