The San Francisco National Cemetery is the oldest national cemetery on the west coast. Established pursuant to a War Department General Order on December 12, 1884, the cemetery first comprised of only 9.5 acres, but was later extended to its present 28 acres.

The cemetery is located on the grounds of the original post cemetery. It also includes remains of persons originally interred at several abandoned forts and camps along the Pacific coast and other parts of the Far West, including: Fort Halleck and Fort McDermitt in Nevada, Fort Yuma in California, Fort Colville and Fort Townsend in Washington, and Camp Crittenden and Fort McDowell in Arizona.
