Lafayette Cemetery, Lafayette, Contra Costa County, California, USA

Notes: Lafayette's cemetery was established on 4-1/2 acres of hillside property owned by Medford Gorham. In 1874, he sold the property for $100 to the Cemetery Corporation which was chaired by Elam Brown. The Corporation fenced the property and located the roads as they presently exist. The original Death and Burial Record Book, still on file in the cemetery caretaker's building, shows names of the deceased, date and cause of death, plus age and place of death. A complete copy of the book is in the Lafayette Historical Society file in the Lafayette library. In 1937, the Alamo-Lafayette Cemetery District was formed with county taxation to ensure perpetual care.

Lafayette Cemetery is at 3285 Mount Diablo Blvd in Lafayette, between Pleasant Hill Road and the Lafayette Park Hotel.
Take Hwy. 24 to the either Central Lafayette exit (and turn left on Mount Diablo Blvd) , or the South Pleasant Hill Exit and turn left on Pleasant Hill and left again onto Mount Diablo.
