Mapping of Historic Pensacola Cemeteries

Mapping of Historic Pensacola Cemeteries



GeoData Center researchers teamed up with the University of West Florida's Archaeology Institute to map gravesites at Pensacola AME Zion and Magnolia cemeteries. These two cemeteries served the Pensacola area's African American community since the 1800s. The mapping effort was completed over Summer 2020. Our researchers used GPS coordinates and photographs to mark gravesites. The goal is to have the information available online for the public. Northwest Florida publication "Inweekly" published this article on the mapping effort.
