Unique memorials commemorate Miami’s history
Our 66-acre cemetery includes several unique memorials. We have a large memorial dedicated to both the survivors and those lost during the 1935 Labor Day hurricane. The storm was the most intense hurricane to make landfall in the United States at the time and the 3rd-worst Atlantic hurricane ever. The Category 5 hurricane killed 408 people, including 259 World War I veterans living in the area.
We also have a Masonic memorial in front of our mausoleum and several flags for the unknown Cuban freedom fighters buried here. The flags stand as a reminder of the Freedom Flyers, who transported Cubans to Miami twice a day, 5 times a week, from 1965 to 1973. About 300,000 refugees made the flight from Cuba to Miami, and we honor those brave pilots who made the journey.
Grand and historic Woodlawn North Mausoleum
Renowned for its magnificent stained-glass windows, Gothic-style architecture and elegant marble corridors, the exquisite Woodlawn North Mausoleum is a cherished resting place. Designed in 1926 by the famed mausoleum architect, McDonald Lovell, the building is reminiscent of a medieval cathedral. The mausoleum has light-filled marble corridors and an exquisite chapel with columned archways and stained-glass skylights. The chapel seats 60 guests for a committal service.
