Old Protestant Cemetery
St. Augustine Florida
(Huguenot Cemetery)
1901 picture from the Library of Congress. Distinct lack of tomb stones today.
The City Government established the cemetery in 1821 for the burial of yellow fever victims and
non-Catholics. It was owned by the Presbyterian Church since 1832. The Huguenot Cemetery was
established soon after Florida became a U. S. territory. The cemetery is  located just outside St.
Augustine's
city gate, The cemetery property was acquired by the Rev. Thomas Alexander and then sold
to the
Presbyterian Church in 1832. By the 1884 concerns for sanitation and public health the city
government required that all public and religious burying grounds in St. Augustine city limits be closed.

The Huguenot Cemetery is significant because it was the first cemetery in St. Augustine dedicated for
Anglo-American civilians. The burial traditions and funerary materials expressed at Huguenot, compared
with the nearby Tolomato Cemetery (established by the Catholic Church in 1777), demonstrate both the
differences and commonalties in funerary practices and religious attitudes of two distinct groups residing
in 19th century St. Augustine. The gravemarkers at Huguenot Cemetery display a range of funerary art
popular in the 19th century, including false box tombs with inscribed ledgers and finely carved headstones
by highly skilled stone carvers in vogue during the 1820s-40s, and the more elaborate monuments that
were favored during the Victorian period. The work of several important stone carvers in the
southeastern United States has been identified at the cemetery, including Thomas Walker and members
of the White family who had shops in Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia.

There were clean-up and restoration efforts by concerned citizens (1946) and the City of St. Augustine
(1951); and a Cemetery Restoration Committee of Memorial Presbyterian Church formed in 1989. It's
members documented gravemarkers, obtained historic preservation grant for preservation plan, began
restoration efforts. Friends of the Huguenot Cemetery Organization has continued restoration, published
history, developed tours of cemetery for visitors.

INSCRIPTIONS IN THE OLD PROTESTANT GRAVEYARD AT ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA.
Vol. XLVII (1893), Page 300 Communicated by B. Frank Leeds, Esq.

This graveyard is just without the old north gate of the town. It has for its southern boundary the town
ditch or moat, eastwardly the shell road, a continuation of George St. northward, and north and west the
grounds of the large (Saint) San Marco Hotel. Two lots outside (west side of its north-west corner) of
the nearly square area of the yard proper are burial lots (one or both) for Jews, but containing no
inscribed stones. The fence of the graveyard proper is of posts and boards the entrance gate on its east
side being mainly of wrought iron and upheld by cement posts.

A hedge, additionally, of low cedars runs along and inside its east line. Scattered about within are various
planted trees, the cedar predominating, some of which are hereafter mentioned as occurring close to
graves. The yard and its contents are in very fair condition, though I am told without a care taken. The list
following, of the occupants of graves covered with inscribed stones, is complete. I have also noticed the
graves indicated by fencing, or uninscribed boards, or stones, whenever such occur.

The rows are somewhat irregular - being out of a straight line so that they allow of the insertion of half
rows. A good many of the graves are without monuments, some of which must contain several bodies, if
one may guess from the quite long list of interments between 1877 and 1884. During the latter year, the
yard was finally closed as a place of interment. The previous list, or lists, of burials, I am told by Mr. G.
T. Bunting, a resident of the town, was, or were, destroyed during the war.

Many colored people, their graves unmarked with an exception or two, lie in this yard. Since this yard
was closed Protestants have buried in the cemetery on the outskirts of New, or West, St. Augustine. The
old Catholic cemetery on Cordova St. within the ancient town lines is perhaps about the size of the old
Protestant yard, but how it can contain the dead of 300 years, almost or quite, without placing them from
2 to 10 deep, I can hardly see. The new Catholic cemetery is outside the old gate, some distance, and to
the east of the shell road. Near the Army Barracks (on St. Francis St.), south end of town, and
connected therewith, a walled graveyard holds the victims of the Dade massacre, and a number of
soldiers that have died at this post. An old graveyard, supposed to have been used by the Indians,
perhaps those converted by the Catholic missionaries, is now covered by the Lynn House, south side of
the Plaza. This ran out into the street, bounding the plaza on the south side. In making the following list I
began copying at the south end of the rows and worked northwardly. The commencement of Row 1 is in
the yard's south-east corner. The work of copying was done early spring, 1892, and was reviewed
February, 1893. B. Frank Leeds. St. Augustine, Fla.
