Formerly St. Mary’s Cemetery, what is now known as ‘Cemetery Park’ in midtown Ventura has a rich history of being the resting place for a wide variety of people from all different religious &        ethnic persuasions, as well as for Civil War veterans & members of Ventura County’s pioneering families.
