Ghost Tours Through Miami City Cemetery

Ghost Tours Through Miami City CemeteryOctober 28 & 29 – Miami City Cemetery, 1800 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami

In honor of Halloween, HistoryMiami’s City Tours will offer two opportunities to tour the Miami City Cemetery where many prominent figures are buried, such as settler Julia Tuttle and business pioneers from the Burdine family. It was created in 1887, making it the first and oldest cemetery in Miami. You’ll see rare tropical plants and trees, as well as the Mediterranean Revival architecture, and the historic styles of the tombstones and mausoleums. These Ghost Tours offer a unique opportunity to learn more about Miami’s fascinating past through the cemetery’s inhabitants. Historian Dr. Paul George and other HistoryMiami guides will share some of the tragic and bizarre stories of those entombed at City Cemetery. Tours are offered Friday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a flashlight for the nighttime tour. Park inside the cemetery. Cost is $25 for HistoryMiami members and $35 for non-members.
