In 1846 a hurricane flooded the former Key West cemetery at Whitehead Point and washed out the bodies from the sand dune graves. A new cemetery was created in its present location a year later. It is now thought to hold about 100,000 bodies buried there in a city with a population of only 25,000. Some of the graves, as in New Orleans, are above ground for fear of flooding. What TripAdvisor feels is important in travel is not necessarily important, though it’s interesting that the travel website ranks the cemetery number 36 out of 187 attractions in Key West! Spooky indeed!
