Saturday, December 18, 2010

The Histopolis Place-of-the-Day for Saturday, December 18, 2010 is the South Florida VA National Cemetery in Palm Beach County, Florida.

"South Florida National Cemetery is the fifth national cemetery built in Florida and the 125th in the national cemetery system.

"Historically, the site of South Florida National Cemetery was used as farmland, as evidenced by the historic canal systems used to irrigate the property. Portions of the site were used for cattle grazing up until the time of its purchase by the National Cemetery Administration in 2002.

"The development of Palm Beach County, and South Florida in general, was sparked by the investment in the local railroad system by Henry Morrison Flagler. An early partner of Standard Oil with John D. Rockefeller, Flagler left the company in the late 19th century, turning his attention to the creation of a continuous railway system down the east coast of Florida, stretching from Jacksonville to Key West. This railway was instrumental to the rapid growth of Palm Beach County in the 20th century.

"South Florida National Cemetery opened for burials in 2007, and was formally dedicated on March 9, 2008."
