Directions from Interstate 15: exit on Barstow Road (Hwy 247) and turn north onto Barstow Road. Barstow Road dead-ends into Main Street. Turn west onto Main Street. Continue on Main St. for approx. 4 blocks and turn north onto First Street. While traveling on First Street, it will become a very large bridge that crosses over a raiload hump-yard and the (dry) Mojave River. After driving over the First Street bridge, turn north onto Irwin Road. Mountain View Memorial Park is 1-2 miles ahead and is on the eastern side of Irwin Road.
This cemetery started as a "for profit" cemetery in the 1930s. In the mid-1930s all of the interments from the Barstow cemetery were moved to Mountain View's Block #1. Also, during this period, a cemetery manager had all of the grave markers, headstones, wrought iron fences, etc hauled away. As a consequence there are many unmarked graves in Block #1. In the 1960s San Bernardino County took over operation of the cemetery and continues to operate it today. It is in very good repair and still accepting burials. There are approximately 8,900 interments in this cemetery.
