Biographical / Historical Notes

Established around 1876 as a Catholic cemetery by Father Antonio Ubach, Calvary Cemetery in San Diego’s Mission Hills’ community was used extensively from 1880 to 1919. After the last burial in 1960, it fell into disrepair and a city resolution converted the cemetery into Calvary Memorial Pioneer Park in 1970. Of the more than 600 gravestones and monuments that remained in the cemetery, 142 were preserved in a section of the park while the others were removed to the city’s Mount Hope Cemetery.
