Mountain View Cemetery is a family-owned, privately run, cemetery.

History

Mountain View Cemetery was established in 1882 by landowner Levi W Giddings and his son Joshua Reed Giddings on their own family property.

The cemetery came about because Levi's daughter, Laura, had been buried on the property his friend Col. Jabez Banbury, inside the Pasadena city limits. In 1905, when the city banned the practice of backyard burials, Levi had to move his daughter's remains to another location. He chose to establish a cemetery business on his property so that his daughter could be buried at home.

Today, Mountain View Cemetery is still in the hands of the Giddings family.
