Cemetery notes and/or description:
East Lawn Memorial Park was once a country farm on the outskirts of Sacramento. When it opened for business as a cemetery in 1904, many sightseers came to marvel at the park-like area of over 40 acres that would serve as the final resting place for generations of northern Californians. To date, over 100,000 people have been laid to rest at East Lawn during its 110+ years of operation. Many burials (4,000-5,000) from one of the earliest Sacramento cemeteries, New Helvetia Cemetery (Old Sutter Burying Ground), were removed from that site (now the location of Sutter Middle School) and re-interred at East Lawn. The Main Building containing offices, a chapel, numerous crypts and niches was built in 1926. There are 48 beautiful stained glass windows, some measuring almost 20 feet tall, throughout the Main Building (created by Clarence Todd and W. G. Pearson). A later addition, the El Dorado Mausoleum, stands to the left of the Main Building. All of East Lawn Memorial Park, its expansive acreage, buildings, and the unique clock at the entrance is truly a historic community landmark.
