Good Hope A.M.E. Church Cemetery

Pastor J. B. Stallworth
Hope Lodge #19, F. & A. M.

The Good Hope A.M.E. Church Cemetery in Warrington was somewhat hidden in dense underbrush for years, though the Church on Gulf Beach Highway was certainly conducting burials in it for years. This a a Black Cemetery, belonging to Warrington’s Good Hope A.M.E. Church, located on Gulf Beach Hwy. The cemetery is located behind the current Warrington Volunteer Fire Department (in 2000) at 2nd Avenue and Barrancas Avenue. In March of 2000, it is chain-link fenced and well-kept. In 1982, this cemetery was again “discovered,” when a robbery sent local businessmen out around the back of their stores and into the middle of the underbrush and headstones.

There are a number of military headstones here, one with the inscription, “U.S.C. Inf.,” which stands for United States Colored Infantry. Reference an article written in the local Pensacola News-Journal, dated Monday, September 27, 1982.

This cemetery was surveyed by Evan R. STROHL and his son, Jonathan, in February 1983, following local newspaper articles about its re-discovery. On March 25, 2000, it was re-surveyed by Evan STROHL and Kathy DUVALL of the West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS).

Please send corrections or additions to Evan Strohl, WFGS Chairman, Cemetery Committee, or the Webmaster.
