Bakersfield. Jewetta Avenue. Brundage Lane. Chester Avenue. Jastro Park. Those names weren't just picked out of thin air; they belong to real people, the founders and pioneers of Kern County. And they are all buried at Histortic Union Cemetery, along with veterans of the Civil War, lawmen and gunslingers, farmers and business owners, grandparents and infants who settled, lived and died in what would become Bakersfield.
