  • Storm Lake Cemetery Gates (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The cemetery has been provided with a wall and entrance that reflect the interest in California's Mission Revival that took place after the turn of the century. This revival was often closely associated with the Craftsman movement, and that influence is reflected in this design. The low, enclosing walls and the high, arched walls flanking the entrance are of rough stone. The arched openings are covered by tile roofs; at the center is a shingled gable roof with beams and struts exposed. What looks like an older cemetery sign has been placed above the eaveline of the entrance roof.
