Historic cemeteries are amazing outdoor museums containing vast amounts of information on markers and tombstones that can be “read” like historic documents. This presentation describes the development of the modern cemetery, the kinds of information that can be learned from inscriptions and symbols on markers, the laws protecting historic cemeteries in Florida, and ways to protect them for the future.
