This one's got elevated vaults, funny epitaphs, plus chickens and iguanas running about! It's beautiful.

Elevated above the ground , these concrete enclosed graves reflect the high water table in Key West. Would be a fun "Halloween walking tour" for ghosts and goblins..

Walking through the are and seeing this we decided to drop in and walk the grounds kinda cool with all the dates, however I'm told this is actually not the real location of most of the older graves as they were relocTe after a huge storm.

Its been many years since we rode bikes past this cemetery. It was fun to read the funny things people wrote on the tombstones however.

This is an off-beat funky cemetery that fits the Key West style. The tombstone with the words "I told you I was sick" by itself makes a visit worthwhile. An interesting place to visit for the stories it tells.

Visited with another couple who had been to KW, but never to the cemetery. They were fascinated by the tombs and really enjoyed looking at some of the epitaphs. It is a great way to spend a little "free" time in KW.

I don't get creeped out by cemeteries, I find them interesting. To walk around and read about the many people that stood there before us many years before. It's history and a humble tribute to those who have passed. It also stands as a home for lots of Iguanas.

The Key West Cemetery is amazing. From seeing lizards and iguanas running thru the cemetery to finding the Epitaph of "I told you I was sick" in the back of the cemetery is really a neat experience. It is the quietest place on the island and I could spend days in the cemetery learning about all of it's notable residents... More

Take time to walk through this cemetery. We spent well over an out looking at all of the differnent family plots. Lots of births and deaths in the 1800's. We googled a lot of family names to read the history behind them. You can tell which families had money and probably still do by the looks of the plots. Very... More

Take an hour or so and stroll through the Key West Cemetery. Several historic burial sites to see, especially the burial section for victims of the USS Maine.
