Not much here but if you have been to the Del Norte County Museum and know the history of the shipwreck it is an interesting stop as you drive up the coast.

Short walk, some very old grave markers that were moved here. A bit of history you never would have known if you hadn't walked here.

Very artistic place. This is an old, old place with some old, old graves of Crescent City people and children buried here. I am always interested in who these people were and what happened to them. There is a great group who volunteers to keep...More

This cemetery (if it really is one, since I have heard the bodies were moved) is really lacking in interpretive information. In fact it is confusing. Since we know the accident happened in 1865, why are there so many gravestones showing deaths after that date....More

We went to this memorial on memorial day. It was very moving, touching, and peaceful to remember those who have lost their lives in the shipping industry. It's a beautiful spot to be laid to rest.

This is the memorial for the lives lost in the Brother Jonathan shipwreck. It is in the west ending a nice park and just across the street from a very nice ocean overlook. Just a perfect place for a walk and a little history.

We were told that no bodies remain in this seaside location, but it is interesting to read about the wreck of the Brother Jonathan, a Pacific Mail steamer. Informative headstones are arranged around the memorial. There are benches to sit on while you enjoy the...More
