Join the Division of Historical Resources and the Florida Public Archaeology Network on Saturday, May 14, for two walking tours of Old City Cemetery in Tallahassee.

Offered at 10 a.m. and again at 1 p.m., the guided walking tours will focus on the cemetery’s history, offer tips for researching cemetery records, and include live demonstrations on how to properly clean historic headstones and how archaeologists use photogrammetry to create 3D models of cemetery resources. Before and after the program, stop by our outreach table from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Downtown Market to learn more about statewide efforts to document the location of Florida’s history cemeteries.

This program is free and open to the public. Both tours will start at the cemetery’s main gate, located on N. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. near Park Ave. Street parking is available nearby. Guests should wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk and stand for the duration of the tour.

This program is held in conjunction with the Division of Historical Resources’ 2022 Historic Preservation Month theme “Caring for Florida’s Historic Cemeteries.”
