From the earliest days of European exploration, the area that today is the Eternal Valley Cemetery in Newhall, has been a site rich with history. In 1769, an expedition sent out by Father Junipero Serra to find the Bay of Monterey, passed through the area. In 1847, American troops under the command of John C. Fremont reportedly camped at the site. A few years later, Sanford Lyon took over a stagecoach station that was on or near the property. A small cemetery was created at that time, which today is preserved in Eternal Valley as the Garden of the Pioneers.
