Description:

The Evergreen Cemetery, with 67 acres and 300,000 graves, was established 1877 and is the oldest cemetery in Los Angeles. This cemetery does not have many celebrity graves, but does host some real historical heavyweights like George A. Ralphs (founder of Ralphs), Biddy Mason (co-founder of the First African Amerian Episcopal Church), and many Hollenbecks, Lankershims, and Van Nuyes.  Evidently the Pacific Coast Showmens Association bought land here in 1922 which has been used as the burial ground for over 400 carnies (carnival workers).
