St. Michael's Cemetery is an eight-acre green space in the heart of urban, historic Pensacola, Florida. Probably in use by the mid to late 18th century, the land was officially designated a cemetery by the King of Spain in 1807. Although initially assigned to the Catholic inhabitants of Pensacola, people of all faiths have traditionally been buried here. The cemetery is an open air museum that is a testament to the diverse history of Pensacola.

Today, the cemetery is managed by the St. Michael's Cemetery Foundation of Pensacola, Inc., whose mission is to provide overall management, support restoration and conservation efforts that maintain the historic fabric of the site, and promote public awareness and stewardship through education. The nonprofit Foundation works with the University of West Florida and many community groups and individuals to preserve this historic site.

  • We just happened to be passing the cemetery and decided to drive through. Some older areas a bit over grown, but it was interesting to see and read some of the headstones.  more »
  • We took a walk thru this cemetery. If you like old cemeteries, then this is for you. There is off street parking.  more »

  • One immediately gets the impression that this is an old cemetery. As I wandered around taking photos I was pleased how well kept up the cemetery grounds. I was glad for the billboards which shared lots of information. I also appreciated the rod iron fence surrounding the property. A real jewel of a cemetery and in area, not large. This cemetery is worth a visit.
  • Well kept and informative. A pleasant walk.
