Evergreen Cemetery

Established in 1864.  Land for the cemetery was deeded by Jerome C. Ford. Many of the original  Mendocino families are buried here, including the Fords, Escolas and Faulkners.  There are many unmarked graves along both the West and East fences which are burials of loggers and sailors.  An unknown sailor was unearthed at the Mendocino Headlands during the 1980’s and the remains were subsequently buried in Evergreen as The Unknown Sailor.  There are over 800 known burials.
