Santa Clara County
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located in the Santa Teresa Hills.
"California Point of Historical Interest Number SCL-052”
Dating back to the early 1850's, this cemetery was in use until the 1920's when Musician Ben Black, who wrote the then popular song, “Moonlight and Roses”, bought some of the mining company land at the Hacienda and subdivided it. Bertram Road was cut through the cemetery over the tops of an unknown number of graves. After being tax-deeded to historian Gene Vennum, he turned the Hacienda Cemetery over to the California Pioneers of Santa Clara County in 1974.
