Mission Cemetery

Burials have taken place at the Mission Dolores cemetery from the 1790's until the 1890's. Once covering a larger area it has been consolidated into the present site.

The remains of some 5000 Native American converts have been brought together into a mass grave.

Most of the present grave markers are from after the Gold Rush and comprise notable citizens who have given their names to the streets of the city.
