Two palms, Jax Beach
These are in the very peaceful black graveyard in Jax Beach. It is directly across Beach Blvd. from the white graveyard. Now, before people get their panties in a bunch, these are old designations. The races were buried as they lived, years ago. I am sure that there is now a mix of races, at least in the old white graveyard. The graves in the black graveyard seem to stop in the 1980s. when such separations ended officially. The black/African-American side is very peaceful and the graves are in a lovely grove of trees behind these palms.
