Welcome to the Modesto Pioneer Cemetery Website.

Our Mission Statement

The mission of the Modesto Pioneer Cemetery Association is to provide a serene resting place for deceased persons and a comfortable atmosphere for their loved ones; to preserve the physical artifacts, buildings, and infrastructure of the cemetery, to maintain the landscape in a pleasing manner and to record and provide accurate gravesite locator information.


Modesto Pioneer Cemetery, formerly Odd Fellows Cemetery, is one of four cemeteries located within the "Silent City" at the corner of Scenic Drive and Bodem Avenue.  We hope you will spend some time exploring our website.  You will find it a wealth of information.  Contact us for information about plot availability, price and grave location. 

Learn about the history of our mausoleum, depicted above, and how you can secure a niche in this historical building.  This beautiful Victorian era mausoleum, that is the crown jewel  of the Modesto Pioneer Cemetery, is depicted in photographs and description on our website.  There are still crypts available.  Many of the members of the founding families of Modesto are at rest here in the mausoleum
