Happy Halloween readers! Today’s post titled “Between Heaven and Earth” takes a look at one of Miami’s oldest cemeteries called The City Cemetery which was built in 1887. Stepping foot inside this sacred historic landmark wasn’t at all spooky like some of you might imagine, but in fact I found myself feeling quite calm and peaceful. The cemetery is really beautiful and the fact that it’s so rich with history makes it even more of a must-stop. Why? Well, many of Miami’s pioneers are buried here. Burdine, Peacock, Tuttle, Duval, Sewell and Jackson. There’s also tombs of Civil War, Spanish-American War and World War I and II veterans. There’s about 10,000 plots and yes, burials still happen here. At the moment, the site is operated by the City of Miami Parks and Recreation’s Operation Department.
