2013 Pioneer Cemetery Renovation[]


The historic San Luis Rey Pioneer Cemetery in Oceanside, California.

"San Luis Rey Pioneer Cemetery in Oceanside, California was renovated on April 27, 2013 in a comprehensive effort by the Carlsbad California Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Hundreds of people were on hand to clean, mow, upright and restore headstones, remove brush and frowth, trim the large eucalyptus tree and re-grade the cemetery road. In addition, their volunteers helped to document the pioneers whoare buried here. We are sincerely grateful for their help to preserve our precious history."
