Cemetery notes and/or description:
St. Xavier Catholic Church was the first non-Chinese house of worship in Chinese Camp. Built in 1855 by popular subscription of funds and labor, the structure originally had a shingle roof which was replaced with sheet iron and several coats of paint when the building was restored in 1949. Father Henry Aleric was the first priest to serve the seventy parishioners at Chinese Camp. He traveled a circuit through the mines, covering an area stretching from Knights Ferry to Second Garrote. He rode a mule. The cemetery surrounds the church. If the church and cemetery look familiar it is because they were seen several times in "High Noon" the western movie shot in Chinese Camp that featured Gary Cooper. California Historical Landmark 423.
