Airport Cemetery

Visited 2/19/2001, transcribed by Vickie Stevens

This is small plot located on the corner of Capital Circle SW and Springhill Road. It's right at the beginning of the runway, where the planes land, on a small hill. In fact the airport built its runway around the cemetery. It's county owned and was part of a pauper's cemetery. It's over grown with weeds and has many snake holes. You can see many impressions of graves that have sunken into the ground. It's surrounded by chain link fence placed there by the city to block it from the runway and field around the runway. All the graves face the airplanes as land and if it was cleared and maintained it would be the first thing visitors see when they arrive in Tallahassee Fl!
