Time and Tolomato Times

This is it! This is the start of the Tolomato Cemetery Preservation Association blog, where you'll find out all about events that we have had and the events that we plan to have. You'll also get bite-size installments of Tolomato history, cemetery preservation information and connections, and some lovely photographs of this truly beautiful site.

The TCPA was founded just this year, inspired by Matthew Kear's 2009 thesis, In Reverence: A Plan for the Preservation of Tolomato Cemetery, St. Augustine, Florida.  His thesis was the catalyst that finally brought together a group of St Augustine residents involved in other aspects of the St Augustine historical community, ranging from archaeology to tourism, and got us moving in the same direction.  With the support and help of the Cathedral Basilica of St Augustine, the owner of the cemetery, we are already addressing the problems of delayed maintenance, the need for access and interpretation, and plans for urgently necessary preservation work in the near future.  You can learn more about us on our website, Tolomato Cemetery.

Follow us in this work.  Participate if you can, perhaps by joining the TCPA, perhaps by attending our events. And if you don't live in St Augustine, plan on visiting us soon!
