About Santa Maria Cemetery, Santa Maria

The I.O.O.F. and F. & A.M. Cemetery was started July 9, 1883 by the I.O.O.F. Lodge in conjunction with the F.& A.M. Lodge. At that time the property was considered to be outside of the downtown area far enough that it wouldn’t be in the way of planned growth. The town was already encroaching on a cemetery that was started in 1872 called Thornburg-Jones Cemetery. In 1884 the Thornburg-Jones Cemetery was moved to the new I.O.O.F. and F.& A.M. location. Removal of all remains was completed by 1886.

The Santa Maria Cemetery District was established August 6, 1917, in response to a petition signed by the required number of qualified electors in the District. The Cemetery was organized as a Special District in and for the County of Santa Barbara.
