This old cemetery is a memorial to those who lost their lives on the S.S. Brother Jonathan, a wooden side-wheel steamer sunk on July 30, 1865 with 244 people on board, including crew, passengers and a traveling circus.
Brother Jonathan Cemetery is designated a California State Historical Landmark (#541) and is located at the corner of Ninth Street and South Pebble Beach Drive.
The cemetery doubles as a park and is a great place to fly kites, play baseball, and throw a frisbee.
