This Cemetery is an amazing time capsule of Key West's past. The entrance is at the intersection of Margaret and Angela Street. Many of the graves are above ground, and it's a who's who of Key West. You will find unusual things around every turn. For example, the family plot that also contains graves of pet deer, rabbit, and dogs. Or epitaphs like "I told you I was sick". A Ghost Tour starts here too. They will charge $18 or so per person. The tour guide takes quite a creative license to stories (not always true). To be better informed you can pick up a free copy of Sharon Wells walking tour guide available at a local Information office. There is another walking tour called the Key West Ghost Tour. This is a walking tour that starts at the La Concha Hotel on Duval Street around 9PM, and takes you past some of the haunted sites of Key West and ends in a haunted pub. The tour guide will lead you by lantern light through the streets, stopping in front of several buildings and sites to tell you the story of what once happened there. The tour lasts about an hour and a half.
