Los Angeles County
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Fairmount Cemetery is located in the San Gabriel foothills between the Cities of Azusa and Glendora. It is technically considered within the City of Glendora.
There is a great deal of new housing construction in the area, so it is difficult to find. To get to the location, look for the Dhammakaya International Meditation Center, located at 865 E. Monrovia Place, Azusa, at the intersection of Palm Drive and Monrovia Place.
From Palm Drive and Monrovia Place, follow Monrovia Place east into the old Monrovia Nursery, about 1/4 mile on a gravel road, and look to the left and up. On San Felipe Hill, above the nursery, you will see the entrance gate to the cemetery. You can drive up to the gate at the end of a gravel road. Although the gate itself is locked, room for a single person to walk around it has been deliberately provided on the right side.
Although the area has been vandalized in the past, the current trustees have cleaned up the grounds considerably, and services are held every Memorial Day.
