This is where many of Miami’s early Bahamian settlers were buried. In 1913 five families pooled $140 to buy the plot, later named after the wife of E.W.F. Stirrup, one of South Florida’s first black millionaires. It’s above-ground like many cemeteries in the Caribbean, where the water table is too high to bury the dead. It’s rumored to be the cemetery that inspired the aesthetic of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video.
