Sprawling across the easternmost part of Los Angeles, near the border between L.A. and Orange County, the area itself has a long history, deeply rooted in the bygone times of California.
More than 5,000 years ago, the area of Rose Hills was home to the Native Tongva people-Kizh Nation, who lived in the Los Angeles basin. With villages scattered throughout Southern California, the Tongva were known for naming their homes after local features in the area. Rose Hills was home to the largest village of the Tongva tribe who called the area, “Otsungna”, which translates to, “Place of Roses”; after the native wood, roses growing along the creek.
Rose Hills is also known for being the location of one of the first cemeteries in the country. Rose Hills Memorial Park still offers all the necessary services and facilities for memorialization. Local well-known names from the Los Angeles area like Jaime Escalante, Bob Chandler, Dick Hoerner, Felicitas Mendez, and American Gangster rapper, hip-hop producer, and record executive, Eazy-E, were all laid in their final resting place at Rose Hills Memorial Park.
