South Florida National Cemetery is administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
South Florida National Cemetery opened for burials in 2007, and was formally dedicated on March 9, 2008. It is the fifth national cemetery built in Florida and the 125th in the national cemetery system. Previously, the site 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 313-acre South Florida National Cemetery is expected to serve veterans� needs for the next 50 years.
