This is a view from the southern boundary of Dolores Park looking north towards downtown San Francisco. There were two Jewish Cemeteries here before they moved to San Mateo County in the late 1880's and early 1890's (Hills of Eternity and Home of Peace Cemeteries). They actually were the first to relocate south of The City, mainly because new land was impossible to find after the Gold Rush happened.

There was an earlier cemetery in Pacific Heights which was relocated here in the 1860's, but, like many of the early pioneers, they didn't have a very long stay.
