Mission San Buenaventura
Mission San Buenaventura, like all of the California missions, has a cemetery containing the remains of thousands of California Native Americans & early Ventura County settlers. Sadly it is underneath a school.....
As you can see in most of these early pictures, the cemetery was located to the left of the church. For whatever reason the powers that be decided to cover it up with a boring school and pretend like it was never there. How about placing a plaque or some kind of memorial near the location of this very historical cemetery? I'll even pay the 50$ it would cost to have one made. Ridiculous.
