Bakersfield National Cemetery is administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
Bakersfield National Cemetery was established in 2008 when the US Department of Veterans Affairs acquired 500 acres from the Tejon Ranch Company. It hosted its first cremated remains on July 1, 2009, and first casket burial on July 2.
The cemetery is located on a portion of land that had once been used by the short-lived U.S. Army Camel Corps that was based in nearby Fort Tejon from 1857 to 1863.
