::  City of Miami Cemetery
1800 NE 2nd Avenue
Year Established: 1897
Architect/Builder: Various
Date Designated: 1983

b. Established in 1897 on land once owned by the Brickell family, the City of Miami Cemetery is one of Miami's most significant landmarks. It is the final resting place for members of nearly all the important pioneer families in the city. Among the prominent citizens interred here is Julia Tuttle, the “Mother of Miami.” Intricately carved headstones and classically styled mausoleums serve as a reminder of Miami's early days, and the cemetery remains a lasting reference to the city's pioneer era. This cemetery was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
