A very unusual cemetery - several graves have humorous epitaphs (e.g., "I told you I was sick").

It is interesting to view the above ground cribs, see the gravestones, names and what is written. Sometimes very funny, interesting to view from historical viewpoint. Makes one appreciate our modern life

For people who like old cemeteries, this one is great. There are many family plots with headstones for many generations. We had learned some of the history of the cemetery from the Fireman's museum as this is where the fire bell was originally placed

Interesting tombs and other features of an island cemetery. Saw an iguana sunning itself on a tomb. Saw a funeral. The Jewish corner of the cemetery is especially peaceful.

Very cool to walk through this old historic cemetery. Many iguanas living amongst the tombsstones. Nice for an hour stroll

A deceased husband's headstone reads:" At least now I know where you are". Submitted by his wife!!! You will find this one and many more as you stroll around.

Free to look. Parking is very limited in this area. Had to park a couple blocks away
