Its history started around the church and for several decades it was fenced with barbed wire the "parish square" as it was known, as later divided into two sections, one named Rio Branco square and the other Cel. Luiz Alves square. This division permitted a structure change by paving the alleys and replacing kerosene by electric lighting. The square took shape in the 30s and from then on several restoration took place, the last one in the 80s when a new architectonic design was implemented.

CEMITÉRIO DO CAMPO (AMERICAN FIELD CEMITERY)

 

 


          The cemitery is located in the borough called Campo (field) that gave the name Cemitério do Campo, also known as American Cemitery (American Field Cemitery). It started in 1867 with the burial of the immigrant Mrs. Beatrice Oliver, wife of Cel. Oliver owner of a farm in the Campo vicinity. With the death of his two daughters soon after, the Colonel destined one hectare of his land so American families could bury their dead, because at that time, the city cemitery did not allow the burial of non catholics. The Cemitério do Campo belongs to the Fratenidade de Descendência Americana - FDA (American Descendant Fraternity), an association established by descendants of American immigrants who came to this region from 1866 after the Secession War. The cemitery has received illustrious visitors as the former Governor of Georgia and U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalyn in the 70s in addition to U.S. consulate representatives, newspapers, TV, and magazines. There are more than 400 immigrants and descendants buried in the cemitery. In the recreation area, every year in April, it is held the Brazil-United States Confederate Festival that is attended by the descendants and guests from different regions of Brazil and abroad. This cemitery is an important historical reference for our city.
