Cemetery Log Date: May 30, 2014
Pine Rest Cemetery is located in Port Salerno, FL (which is why it is also known as "Port Salerno Cemetery.). This fishing town was created as a small settlement in the southern shores of St. Lucie river inlet. It was named "Salerno" because the main settlers were emigrants from the Italian city of Salerno.
The first burial was Donald Homes, a child, with several other first settlers following him. The cemetery is approximately 3 acres and is quite open with just a few old, large pine trees remaining in the old section. The oldest part of the cemetery consists of stones oriented north/south, the newer section east/west.
