In 1977, I was in my last year at UC Riverside. A history class during that last year introduced me to Agua Mansa Cemetery in San Bernardino County. It was an old decaying cemetery then and 35 years later, it still is. Back then there were, of course, no digital cameras and the pictures I took are tucked firmly away with the research I gathered at the time. Tucked away in a box and not surfacing easily.
I've always had a soft spot for this particular cemetery. It is here that I trace my love for old cemeteries and hopefully the research and photos will surface soon and I can share my own work here. Today, as I was exploring for Agua Mansa online, I ran across an image that lead me to a blog. I scrolled through two years worth of posting and found, to my delight, Hoboannie's forgotten graves of Agua Mansa Cemetery.
