Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery, Santa Paula
About Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery, Santa Paula
Our Santa Paula cemetery history spans more than 100 years. In the late 1800s, Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery in Santa Paula, California, was divided into 3 family sections: the Sewell, Fagan and Mt. Olive sections.
In 1903, our cemetery was incorporated and became known as the Santa Paula Cemetery Association. Although the cemetery was an endowment care cemetery at this time, its 3 original sections were considered nonendowment care gardens. Ed Davis became the controlling owner in 1950 and was responsible for establishing the endowment care of the original sections, thus giving our cemetery its uniform appearance today.
