Famous Graves

Where California’s Greats Are Laid To Rest

Why do we like to view where famous people were born? For many reasons. We feel that we somehow are in the presence of greatness. And, because we realize that in the end we can be part of a great community with all facets including the rich and the famous. For right now we like to trace the history of San Francisco. We have heard of the Crocker’s and the families that have made California and our country what it is today but somehow when we are standing at their gravesite it seems more real. While celebrities and statesmen are buried here, we also consider every person famous who is immortal at Cypress Lawn. If you are interested in knowing more about the legends buried at Cypress Lawn, go to our Heritage Foundation website, to learn more history and find out about tours.
