There is a little known peaceful and serene place in the middle of an Anaheim neighborhood that is the final resting place for over 500 war veterans, several thousand early settlers of Orange County and members of families living in the area.  This place is the Anaheim Cemetery located at 1400 E. Sycamore Street.  This 15-acre park-like cemetery was founded in 1866, provides visitors with historical ties to the early development of Anaheim and Orange County.  This historical landmark is home to the oldest community mausoleum on the west coast (built in 1914) and four private family mausoleums of prominent local families.  Taking a stroll through the cemetery under the majestic camphor trees, you will see interments dating back to the late 1800's as indicated by the fantastic upright monuments, stones and markers.
