A must see for you history buffs on your next visit to the historic Williams House!
Called “beautiful woods” by the Spanish, Bosque Bello Cemetery is located off North 14th Street in Fernandina, toward Amelia Island’s northwest, close to “Old Town.” The Bosque Bello Cemetery’s original section is said to have been founded by Spanish colonials in 1798. However, according to the Amelia Island Genealogical Society, “the oldest identifiable grave, of French Soldier Peter Bouissou de Nicar, dates from 1813.” Apparently, the property was beautiful when the Spanish set eyes upon it, and its beauty remains in contemporary times.
Thanks for the photo Scott Moore!
