One of the most historic and prestigious cemeteries in Miami and, indeed, in the entire southeastern USA, Woodlawn Park Cemetery, at 3260 SW Eighth Street, is the final resting place of some of Miami's premier families and celebrities, including the Brickells, the Peacocks, Coral Gables planner/developer George E. Merrick, and Cuban-American activist Jorge Mas Canosa. Founded in 1913 by T. O. Wilson, this impressive site has earned a reputation for outstanding design, including the notable work of architect McDonald Lovell. Woodlawn Park remains the oldest privately owned cemetery in south Florida, and is documented in the award-winning book *Places in Time: Historic Architecture and Landscapes of Miami (Florida International University, 1994), which confirms that its preservation status was "good" as of the date of publication. The masonry mausoleum (1928), an imposing Gothic-inspired structure with a handsome marble interior, has been cited by architectural historians as "one of the most significant examples of sacred architecture in Dade County." Given its historical and cultural prominence and the relative scarcity of available spaces, buyers should expect to pay premium costs for burial plots at this location. However, cemetery properties owned by families who have relocated to other cities are sometimes available and may be sold at reasonable rates lower than current market values. These properties are typically advertised on web sites dedicated to the buying and selling of cemetery plots.

From Business: Each one of us is unique with our own story to tell. As North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services, Dignity Memorial® professional…
Having to deal with a funeral home is never a pleasant experience to say the least, talk about a sad experience. However I was amazed with the level of service that Mr Fernando Caballero (and his staff) had with me. They truly made me and my family feel like they were also part of our family. I had absolutely NOTHING to worry about; they handle all of their services at their own premises and everything is absolutely hassle-free. I want to personaly thank Teri for her personal attention from begining to end.
Excellent Cemetery !!! Very clean, friendly people. Mom and Dad there.
