Airport Cemetery

   Visited 2/19/2001, transcribed by Vickie Stevens

   This is a small plot located on the corner of Capital Circle S.W. and
   Springhill Road. It's right at the beginning of the landing runway, on
   a small hill. In fact, the airport runway was built around the cemetery.
   The cemetery is county owned and was part of a pauper's cemetrey. It is
   overgrown with weeds and has many snake holes. You can see many depressions
   from sunken graves. The area is surrounded by chain link fence placed
   there by the City of Tallahassee to block it from the runway and field
   around the runway.

   In the photo below, the cemetery is the darker unmowed area about where the
   orange of the caution sign is. Look in the field behind the sign.
