Eternal Valley Memorial Park: California's Pioneer Cemetery.

(Excerpt): Eternal Valley Memorial Park Preserves Traditions of the Area.

When Eternal Valley Memorial Park property was acquired from the Needham family it was established as a non-profit, endowment care association by outstanding leaders in the community at the exact site of Lyon Station. The founders of the Park have all devoted a major portion of their lives to public service. It is their goal to perpetuate the great pioneer tradition of Eternal Valley. Restoration and redevelopment of the historic site are constantly underway. Amid the giant trees, verdant shrubbery, and rolling hills, magnificent statuary will pay tribute forever to the famous Southern California pioneers buried there.

While the freeway systems brought Eternal Valley within easy driving distance of all Los Angeles County, its vast 600 acres keep it safe from the encroachment of homes and industry. Great care is taken to insure that all buildings and improvements preserve the Western tradition and blend with the natural beauty of the Park's surroundings. The foremost architects have been engaged to design Eternal Valley's Chapel of the Oaks, Administration Building, and other facilities. Recognized as part of the authentic Old West, Eternal Valley Memorial Park is truly "California's Pioneer Cemetery."

To assure the future of Eternal Valley, an irrevocable Endowment Care Trust Fund has been established for its care and maintenance. The principal is placed in trust and only the interest is used to care for the Park. Supervised by the State Cemetery Board, the Endowment Care Trust Fund is growing constantly. Every time a space is sold, a specific amount of the purchase price is set aside for the Fund. This is your assurance that every family memorial at Eternal Valley will be perpetuated eternally.
