About Garden of Memories Memorial Park, Salinas

Garden of Memories facilities includes a community mausoleum, columbarium, crematory, and lawn interment sites. The cemetery has been providing dignified and compassionate care to Salinas area families for over 150 years. Garden of Memories is the final resting place of one of America’s best-loved authors, John Steinbeck. A Pulitzer Prize winner in 1940, for Grapes of Wrath, a story of a depression-era Oklahoma family looking for the promised land in California is considered one of the greatest works of American Literature. In 1962, Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for his “realistic and imaginative writing, combining as it does sympathetic humor and keen social perception.” Other major works of Steinbeck include Of Mice and Men, East of Eden, Cannery Row, Travels With Charley.
