|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located between Atherton and Stanford University, Saint Patrrick's Seminary was established in 1894; through the efforts of then Archbishop Patrick William Riordan (1848-1958) and many wealthy benefactors, to include Mrs. Rupert Johnson and Mrs. Leland Stanford. By 1902, the status of major seminary and collegiate institution were achieved.
St. Patrick's Seminary Chapel has been the heart and center of seminary life for over 100 years. It occupies the architectural center of the seminary complex. The crypt of the chapel was completed and dedicated, by Coadjutor Archbishop George Montgomery, on August 4, 1904. Following the complete devastation of the chapel, during the 1906 earthquake, its reconstruction was undertaken.
