Evergreen Cemetery walking tour
Our last tour of Evergreen Cemetery was so popular that we’re doing it again! Join The Jaxson for a guided walking tour at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, October 25.
It’s been said that a city’s history is written on its tombstones, and nowhere is this truer than at Evergreen, Jacksonville’s oldest cemetery that’s still in use and one of our most historic spaces Jaxson co-owners Bill Delaney and Ennis Davis will cover underrepresented history and visit the graves of many of Jacksonville’s most interesting figures, including eccentric slave-raiding founder Isaiah D. Hart, writer and brothel owner Cora Crane, survivors of the Titanic, and more. Hear Jacksonville history as only The Jaxson can tell it.
Cora Crane, writer, brothel owner, and wife of author Stephen Crane, is one of the dozens of important figures buried at Evergreen Cemetery.
Criminal slave raider turned real estate magnate Isaiah D. Hart founded Jacksonville in 1822. He’s buried at Evergreen Cemetery.
