Colma history:

Here is a history page for Colma.

When burials were prohibited in the city and county of San Francisco in 1900, this area became a cemetery area. For a time it was known as Lawndale, but when another town had already used that name first, the name was changed back to Colma. This was on 17 November 1941. There are 17 cemeteries in Colma which take up about 73% of the land area of the town.
