|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Woodlawn Cemetery was the first African American Cemetery in Broward County Florida and also served the indigent. It was originally privately managed, but is now under the management of the City of Fort Lauderdale. It is located between NW 9th Pl., NW 19th Ave., NW 9th St. and Interstate 95. At one time, the cemetery extended to where the expressway now runs. Many of the stones are in a state of disrepair and unidentifiable. The City has placed markers with information and names of persons that are known to be buried there. Unfortunately, most of these burial locations will never be identified, but many of these persons are listed in the Florida Death Index.
