TALLAHASSEE — Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced today that the Michigan Avenue Bridge and Oaklawn Cemetery in Tampa and the Storm Wreck off the coast of St. Augustine have been listed on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places.
“I am pleased to announce the designation of these three resources on the National Register of Historic Places,” said Secretary Detzner. “The Michigan Avenue Bridge is one of the last bobtail swing span bridges in our state, and Oaklawn Cemetery, the first public cemetery in Tampa, has been a consistent presence in the city’s history. The Storm Wreck, a mile off the shore of St. Augustine, dates back to the American Revolution. These resources demonstrate the wide variety of historic sites throughout Florida.”
