This small two-acre urban cemetery contains the graves of 730 servicemen and women and his maintained by the Tampa area American Legion and currently sits next to Post #5. The site contains graves of veterans from the Spanish-American War to Vietnam. The cemetery was supposedly founded when an Auxiliary Member of the American Legion learned a World War I veteran was to be buried in a pauper’s grave and instead purchased the land to begin a cemetery for veterans in the area.
