The Rose Hills Foundation

The Rose Hills Foundation is a legacy of the Founders and Directors of Rose Hills Memorial Park, which is the largest cemetery in North America.

In 1914, a small cemetery was developed on a hillside northwest of the rapidly expanding City of Whittier. Thereafter, an expansion program was begun that was designed to increase the size of the park as well as enhance its beauty. Over 80 years of devoted effort by the management and directors of Rose Hills transformed the small cemetery into the magnificent memorial park it is today.

Pursuant to the goals of its founders, Rose Hills is a legacy to be enjoyed by future generations, not only as a beautiful memorial park, but now as a Foundation created out of proceeds of its sale.
