San Mateo County Cemeteries: Mount Hope

Right next door to St. Anthony's in Pescadero is Mount Hope Cemetery. Like St. Anthony's it is a rural cemetery.  There is no lawn, but the cemetery does not seem untended. Stones stand tall and little touches show a community that cares.  In fact a few years ago, San Mateo County Sheriff's Deputy, Dan Caughey, some prisoners, and a local volunteers worked hard to restore the cemetery to what it is today.

From the top of the cemetery you can catch spectacular views of town below.  Here you will find some of the early settlers, including the Steeles, Moores, Thompsons, Reeds, Blomquists, Williamsons, Weeks and Teagues.
