Who We Are
We are a full service monument dealer. Our location includes a large indoor and outdoor display of Georgia blue granite, black, brown and dakota granite, as well as marble and bronze.
We have state-of-the-art equipment in our shop for sandblasting and laser etching. All monument lettering, engraving, carving, and painting is done on-site.
We furnish monuments, markers, pet markers, benches, cremation memorials, veteran memorials, granite signs, mausoleums, and brick engraving.
Oakes Memorials and Signs is owned and operated by Tim and Kristy Wolfe. The business is proud to build on the service and quality established by the Oakes family for over 40 years and three generations. Today, they provide services to the region including areas in both Virginia and North Carolina.
Oakes began in the 1940's as Chatham Monuments owned by Gus Keck until 1966 when it was sold to Calvin Oakes. It remained Chatham Monuments until 1989 when Calvin's son, Gary, purchased the business. Gary changed the name to Oakes Memorials and Signs and moved into the current location on Franklin Turnpike.
In May of 2018, Tim and Kristy Wolfe purchased the business from Gary and continue to provide quality service with a friendly staff. They still serve the surrounding community from the Franklin Turnpike location.
