Search Agua Mansa Cemetery:

Agua Mansa Cemetery was created by settlers who came from Abiquiu, New Mexico on what is now called the Old Spanish Trail. They created the communities of Agua Mansa and La Placita, along the Santa Ana River starting in the 1840s. The first known burial here occurred in 1852, and the last in 1963.
In an effort to stem vandalism, "Friends for the Preservation of the Agua Mansa Pioneer Cemetery" was formed in 1955 by Marie Espinosa Wood, a descendent of two of the original families. Through hard work and fund raising, these volunteers researched the land title, built a bridge, and fenced and refurbished the cemetery. In 1967, Agua Mansa Pioneer Cemetery was acquired by San Bernardino County and is now administered as a museum branch of the San Bernardino County Museum.
