Home of Peace Memorial Park in East Los Angeles was originally located near the current site of Dodger Stadium and opened in 1855 as the first organized community effort by the city’s pioneer Jewish settlers. The cemetery was moved to its current location in the early part of the 20th century, and contains the final resting places of some of the biggest names in the history of Hollywood, including MGM studio chief Louis B. Mayer, Universal Studios founder Carl Laemmle, three of the four movie-making Warner brothers, and two of the Three Stooges – Curly and Shemp.
