The following is excerpted from "Necropolis North of the Panhandle" by Greg Gaar, originally published in the Haight Ashbury Newspaper, 1982:
In 1853, a group of wealthy entrepreneurs purchased a large tract of sandy but fertile land on the hill where the Fireman's Fund building stands today, west of Presidio and California, and created a 54 acre cemetery.
Lone Mountain Cemetery was named in honor of the conspicuous 500 foot sand hill which stood a half mile to the south. Miles of carriage roads, with views of the distant city and the ocean, twisted through newly planted tress and "every species of ornamental shrubs and rare plants."(1) The peaceful gardens of the new cemetery offered plots to potential customers and a park-like setting for sightseers. In 1854 the first permanent guest arrived at Lone Mountain Cemetery.
