When Savannah was laid out in 1733, the two lots on which this building stands were set aside as a burying ground. William Cox, surgeon, who came on the "Ann," was the first of the colonists to die and was buried here with appropriate ceremonies. This burying ground continued in use until a larger cemetery was established which is now known as Colonial Park.
