The exciting theme will feature pioneers who lived in the settlement of Temescal; a Butterfield stage stop from 1858-1861.
This lush, beautiful valley with abundant water, hot springs and tin mines was home to Civil War veterans, miners, farmers, ranchers, homesteaders, and apiarists long before South Riverside (Corona) was founded.
Surprisingly, some of these early pioneers and/or their descendants were laid to rest in Sunnyslope starting in 1892.

The Sunnyslope Cemetery Project
The society has succeeded in properly and completely documenting the graves of Sunnyslope Cemetery in Corona. The beautifully bound book was displayed at Corona Family History Seminar on 6 October 2007. A copy is available for reference in the Corona Public Library in the Heritage Room (upstairs).
Questions about this project can be directed to
Len Enlow via email
Requests for information that is in the book should be directed to
The Corona Public Library

have been conducted at Sunnyslope for a number of years. Presenters have told the stories of those at rest in the cemetery in a first-person format. These have been presented by the Friends of Sunnyslope, which has sponsored the Cemetery Stroll since 2008 (the Corona Historic Preservation Society sponsored the Cemetery Walk in prior years). All stories have been researched by local historians and written in a narrative format for performance. If you have additional information on these Corona residents, please contact Jean Hibben via email, who will forward the correction or addition to the appropriate historian for further communication and/or adjustment. If you have personal information of someone interred in Sunnyslope that you would like to see featured in a future stroll, contact us and we will follow up accordingly. Primary mover and shaker of the stroll: Kathleen Dever; please direct questions to her via email.
