Welcome to the Historic Brooksville Cemetery Print


Take a Stroll through the Grounds of our Historic Cemetery



The City of Brooksville began official operation of the Brooksville Cemetery in April 1887, when it acquired a 5-acre tract of land, encompassing an acre already in use as "a place of burial of the dead." Originally referred to as Chocochattee Cemetery, our cemetery is located at 1275 Olmes Road, near the intersection of State Road 50 and 50A. The earliest marked grave in the Brooksville Cemetery is that of Jane Hope, who died in 1845 at age 30, was the wife of William Hope.


The Hope family was one of the first white families to settle in this area as early as November 1832. The earliest documented burial is believed to have been that of Charlotte Wynn Pyles Crum, who was killed by Seminole Indians on September 12, 1842. Our cemetery continued to grow, through additional purchases and gifts of land to the City, and today encompasses 51.5 acres. Brooksville Cemetery is the resting place for over 5000 souls and includes veterans from the Civil war, both Confederate and Union soldiers, Spanish American War, World Wars I and II, Korean War, Vietnam and more recent conflicts.
