Ohlone Indian Cemetery, Fremont
About Ohlone Indian Cemetery, Fremont
The Ohlone Indian Cemetery is situated on a plot of land that the Bishop of Oakland gave back to the Ohlone Indians in the 1960s. One can’t get in, as it is fenced off. It’s in Fremont at the intersection of Washington Blvd and Paseo Padre Pkwy.
Before the Spanish mission was established, the area now known as Fremont belonged to the Native Americans of the Ohlone tribe.
While some of the tribe’s members accepted Christianity and moved into the mission, many remained outside and were ravaged by European diseases like chickenpox.
