About Porterville Cemetery, Porterville

The Porterville Public Cemetery District was organized in 1922 and it covers the southeastern part oTulare County. Our special district currently has eight cemeteries under its care which includes Old Porterville, Home of Peace, Hillcrest, Vandalia, St. Anne’s, Crabtree, Springville and Duncan McDonald cemeteries.

The first burial plot for the town of Porterville, said W.WBrown, was on OaStreet. Two acres of land for the present cemetery was bought from Justice George A. Williamson, one of the earliest settlers, by Joseph Lewis, J. EConner, Sr., and John Tyler, trustees of the Porterville Cemetery Association, for a consideration of $200.00, deed dated April 29, 1878. There were no public funds for the cemetery in the early days; but the people were determined thatheir cemetery be of good appearance. When the trees that are now the largest were planted, water had to be carried in buckets to keep them growing.
