This is an abandoned former church and cemetery on private land. About 20 graves are believed to be here. No headstones exist although through researching family records, the names of many of the inhabitants will be added shortly.

The church was built in 1877 by craftsman Giuseppe V. Garbarini of Clinton on land he and Andrea Arata donated. It was a San Francisco diocese mission church and was served by priests from other cities such as Fathers Slevin, DeCarlois, and Gleson (often spelled Gleason). It operated as a church until 1910 when it was converted to a schoolhouse which was abandoned shortly afterward. The church was used as a hay barn before being moved to the Kennedy Mine display in 2002. First interment in the cemetery was in 1879.
