Connect with the past on a virtual tour of the Miami City Cemetery with HistoryMiami Museum’s Resident Historian, Dr. Paul George. Founded in 1897, just a year after the city’s incorporation, this historic graveyard is a monument to so many of the people who helped shape the early history of the Magic City. Hear stories of notable Miami residents, including the “Mother of Miami” Julia Tuttle, civil rights leader Reverend Theodore Gibson, and Bernard Mackey of the Ink Spots Quartet. View the final resting place of Carrie B. Miller, the woman encased in cement.
Zoom presentation will feature a lecture by Dr. George accompanied with a visual presentation of contemporary and archival images.
The recording of the program will be available for registered participants to view on-demand should you miss the live program.
