Greenwood Cemetery, James Avenue S. and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. S
Originally located outside of St. Petersburg, Greenwood Cemetery was established by H.P. Bussey with the first interment in 1892. The efforts of Union veteran Captain Zephaniah Phillips results in identical Union and Confederate monuments being constructed on either side of a central flagpole within the oval drive that is at the center of the cemetery. The Union monument was erected by the Kit Carson Post of the Grand Army of the Republic (G.A.R.) where as the Confederate monument was erected by veterans and friends. Captain Phillips is buried in the cemetery north of the Union monument.
