|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Valley Catholic Cemetery, also known as St. Francis Cemetery after the nearby church that also served as an orphan asylum, reflects the early influence of the Irish and Croatian immigrants that came to the Pajaro Valley, together with the more recent immigrants from Mexico.
The elaborate family crypts that the cemetery is known for show that these are not only lasting resting places for loved ones, but also statements of economic and political status.
