Huguenot Cemetery

It was a lovely morning in St. Augustine so I headed downtown to paint at the Huguenot Cemetery just outside the City Gates. The cemetery was established in 1821 and was opened to serve as the final resting place of those in the city who were not Catholic. At the time, the only other cemetery in the city was the Tolomato, which was reserved for Catholics only. Just after this burial ground opened, an epidemic of yellow fever broke out, claiming the lives of many St. Augustine residents.

Below is the cemetery with my easel set up as I painted.
