Angel statue in Magnolia Cemetery
Magnolia Cemetery is a city cemetery located in Mobile, Alabama, United States. The cemetery is situated on 120 acres (49 hectares) and was established in 1836. From that time onward it served as Mobile's primary burial site during the 19th century. It is the final resting place for many of Mobile's 19th and early 20th century citizens. The cemetery is roughly bounded by Frye Street to the north, Gayle Street to the east, and Ann Street to the west. Virginia Street originally formed the southern border before the cemetery was expanded and now cuts east-west through the center of the cemetery. Magnolia contains more than 80,000 burials and remains an active, though very limited, burial site today.
