“providing a respectful glimpse into the past”
The communities of Agua Mansa and La Placita, across from each other along the Santa Ana River, were the first non-native settlements in the San Bernardino Valley and had the first church and school. These villages were the largest settlement between New Mexico, and Los Angeles during the 1840s. Today, the Agua Mansa Pioneer Cemetery is all that remains of these once- thriving communities. It is currently a branch of the San Bernardino County Museum, which can be reached at 909.307.2669. The cemetery, California State Historical Landmark #121, is the oldest graveyard in San Bernardino County. Apparitions have been reported, and the legend of the cemetery only grew when in 2004 the caretaker, who had lived there for about a year, took his own life on the grounds.
