Key West Cemetery

Sitting at the foot of Solares Hill in Old Town, the Key West Cemetery was established in 1847 after a hurricane washed out the Island’s original cemetery. It’s estimated that as many as 100,000 people are buried in this sprawling 19-acre site—that’s more than the some 30,000 living who currently reside in Key West. With many sections, including memorials for Cuban freedom-fighters, Confederate Navy sailors, and the Battleship Maine, each area tells a story about the history of the Keys, making it a must see on your next visit to Key West.
