Spread the love

Gulf Cemetery will host a Wreaths Across America Ceremony on Saturday, December 18th at 10:45AM. The Historic Gulf Cemetery will be joining with Arlington National Cemetery and over one thousand cemeteries across the country for the annual Wreaths Across America Ceremony. Join in honoring this tradition by your participation in placing wreaths on every veteran’s grave site.  A brief ceremony including a nationally-coordinated moment of silence will precede the placing of the wreaths.  Unlike the memorial day ceremony, this event is informal and those attending are encouraged to be in comfortable attire. Children are encouraged to participate in the wreath laying and many are part of the ceremony. For more information on Wreaths Across America, please visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org. The Historical Marker Council in Tallahassee designated Gulf Cemetery as a State of Florida Heritage Site in 2013. The Cemetery was established in 1914 and is located on the highest point in Santa Rosa Beach, fronting Scenic Highway 393. The historical marker was unveiled at the cemetery’s 100th birthday on Memorial Day, May 26, 2014. The historic Gulf Cemetery is located on South County Highway 393 in Santa Rosa Beach.
