Did you know that WCHS is a protector of some of the local abandoned cemeteries? The Historic Cemetery Project is actively working to document the current condition of these very important sites throughout the county. Mark Perrin, Cemetery Committee Chair, heads up this valuable project. Many WCHS volunteers are assisting.
The Wakulla County Historical Society has published a book "Cemeteries Historic and Current of Wakulla County, Florida". This book was originally published in February 2004. This book is for sale in the Museum Shop. In 2015, the Cemetery Committee began the process of updating the data on these cemeteries. All Historic Cemeteries in Wakulla County were registered on the Florida Master Site File. An historic cemetery is a site that is over 50 years old. Information on this site includes the names of the cemeteries, a brief history and a list of the people interred in the cemetery.
