“Peaceful and tranquil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Not normally something I would do but was intrigued by my visit, really original. Allow an hour to have a look around. Graves are stacked and it is possible to work out family connections, some sad stories!

“great to hear about the inteRESTING people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Here lies some of the people who made KW what it is today. There are stories of a man, 40 inches tall, who didn't want a midget casket. " I told you I was Sick", love that one. It is free to walk around and pay respect to those there.

“key west Cemetery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

For those who like to visit cemeteries, this one is interesting. you can find a memorial for soldiers and different areas are for different faiths. A 20 minutes walk in the cemetery is sufficient to get a feel of the place.

“We have our spots picked out”

The most unusual cemetery you will ever experience. Take the tour. The best tombstone engraving: "I told you I was sick".
