"This cemetery represents the city's first burial site and contains a Who's Who of early Miamians. Its beauty stems from the fact that Dr. David Fairchild, world-renowned horticulturist, and Alexis Korsdakoff, sexton from 1927-62, planted more than three hundred varieties of plants and trees. If one studies the old City Cemetery and those pioneers buried in it, he/she will gain a deep insight into the early history of the Magic City. The facility is a history book that casts a broad beam over the story of early Miami."
Dr. Paul S. George, Historian
7 September 1993
Some of the early Miamian's buried here are Julia Tuttle, Dr. James M. Jackson, John Seybold, William Burdine and John Peacock.
