1850 Manatee Burying Grounds
Manatee Village Historical Park works in partnership with the City of Bradenton to offer free self-guided walking tours of the 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds. The Burying Grounds are located East of Manatee Village Historical Park (across 15th St East). This is the oldest established cemetery in Manatee County.
Pick up a key to the cemetery and an information packet in our Whistle Stop Gift Shop. Visitors will stroll past the entrance of our 1887 Church and use the gates that lead to the Burying Grounds. The 1850 Manatee Burying Grounds must be locked and the key returned by the time the museum closes at 4:00pm.
