San Luis Rey Pioneer Cemetery: Oceanside, CA, USA

Located off Rancho Del Oro Road between Mission Avenue and the Highway 76 Expressway, across from Mission San Luis Rey.  Built on land donated in 1875 it was originally a Protestant cemetery, the alternative to the Catholic cemetery at Mission San Luis Rey.

Many Oceanside pioneers are buried here including city founder Andrew Jackson Myers.

Several strands of the same type of barbed wire used in an earlier cemetery fence are included in the present fence.
