French plantation, but at no time has
there ever been a fort at Old Spanish Fort.

As time passes, the natural course of decay takes a major toll on the man made memorials to our
loved ones. On August 29th 2005, the decay of this cemetery was accelerated by the
devastation of Hurricane Katrina. A record breaking tidal surge overwhelmed the cemetery and
destroyed many of the historic graves.
