Old City Cemetery is owned by the City of Monticello.
Old City Cemetery was established in 1827.
The name of the cemetery was originally referred to as "City Cemetery" and "Public Burying Ground". In the later decades, when newer cemeteries were established, it became known as, "Old City Cemetery", "Old Monticello Cemetery", and "Old Burying Ground". It's also today known as, "1827 City Cemetery".
The Old City Cemetery is the oldest of the Monticello cemeteries. Many of the earliest settlers are buried here. Not all graves are marked and many are in bad repair. Following the Civil War Battle of Olustee, 94 miles to the east on the road to Jacksonville, a number of the injured soldiers were brought to Monticello and some who died were buried in this cemetery. For many years, memorial services were held under the old oak tree near these Confederate graves on the weekend nearest to April 26th (the Southern Memorial Day).
There are numerous unmarked graves.
