Cemetery notes and/or description:
San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery was built on land donated by the Romero Ranch Company on Feb. 3, 1989. Construction of the 105 acre first phase began on July 15, 1990. The water-pumping station on the California Aqueduct, the last element of construction, was completed in May 1992. As the sign at the main gate states, the cemetery is maintained as a natural environment with dry, steep, rolling hills, sparse native oaks and almond orchards. Non-irrigated native grasses that take on earth tones for most of the year and blend with the natural surroundings cover the ground surface of the burial areas. It is also inhabited by wild life including snakes.


From the North Bay, drive south on Highway 101 then East on State Route 152 (toward Los Banos). As you drive over Pacheco Pass take State Highway 33 to the left. Drive about three and a half miles on Highway 33 past Santa Nella and then turn left on McCabe Road. Travel four miles. The cemetery will be at the end of the road.
