Miami Cemetery

and Little Miami Bicycle Trail

In 1866 the Miami Cemetery Association was formed with several prominent Quakers as Trustees. It was dedicated in 1867 “as a burial place forever”. Leopold Weltz of Wilmington landscaped the grounds, making it into a beautiful park-like setting, one of the first cemeteries to be landscaped in this way in the 19th century. Tourists would come on the train to spend the day with their picnics at Miami Cemetery.

The Dakin ancestors of writer Tennessee Williams are buried here.
