Tallahassee Florida’s Old City Cemetery was established in 1829 and is owned and operated by the City of Tallahassee. It is free and open to the public, with general hours of “sunup to sundown”. The cemetery itself tells the history of Tallahassee and Florida. It used to be segregated, with white people buried on the eastern side and black people on the western side. During the Civil War, confederates were buried amongst the whites and Union soldiers buried amongst the blacks.
