|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The first Christian cemetery in the Santa Clara Valley was founded by the same Franciscan Padres who founded Mission Santa Clara de Asis in 1777.
By 1851, when Santa Clara College was founded, the Jesuit Fathers realized that the old cemetery near the Mission was filled. The new site they selected was within a few minutes walk from the Mission and was located near the small Adobe home of Don Fernando Berryessa. This is the current location of Santa Clara Mission Cemetery at the corner of Winchester Boulevard and Bellomy Street.
