Manatee Village Historical Park
Manatee Village Historical Park is hosting "Tombstone Tour", a digital event about the 1850 Manatee Burying Ground. Learn about the history of the cemetery, the meaning of tombstone symbols, and listen to some of the stories of those who were buried there.
The 1850 Manatee Burying Ground is the oldest public cemetery in Manatee County. It was the first burying ground for the Village of Manatee, which was the first established white settlement between Tampa and Key West, dating to 1842. The Burying Ground was in use from 1850-1892, with a few family burials occurring up until the 1960s.
