Our History

Magnolia Memorial shelters the graves of relative county newcomers and county pioneers, both unknown and well-known.

At a public meeting held on January 18, 1876, the colonists of Westminster voted to purchase 6 acres of land and build a cemetery for early settlers.

 

Lampsons (or Lamsons) and Chapmans are buried here. So is a local victim of the 1933 Long Beach earthquake. In addition, a murderer is rumored to be buried under its shady trees along with Loving Coker, a decorated Confederate veteran, who still has relatives living in Huntington Beach.
