Sarasota National Cemetery is administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
Sarasota National Cemetery resulted from the passage of the National Cemetery Expansion Act of 2003, when Congress directed the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to establish six new national cemeteries. The NCA purchased acreage from J. Arlin Hawkins, in 2007, land that had been operated as a family-operated ranch since the 1870s. Sarasota National Cemetery was formally dedicated in 2008 and opened for burials the following year. It is the sixth national cemetery established in Florida and the 127th in the national cemetery system.
