Yosemite Cemetery

In Yosemite Valley just to the west of the Yosemite Museum Gallery lies the Yosemite Pioneer Cemetery. The cemetery dates back to the 1800s with many of the graveyard headstones still readable. The Yosemite graveyard includes a number of graves including those of Native American, early pioneers and former Yosemite Valley residents. It’s now surrounded by staff buildings, but is well worth taking a walk through to view some of the early history of Yosemite.
