No other museum in Sacramento offers such a diverse sense of history. The architect of Sacramento is buried here as is thousands of others that made us what we are today. Free guided tours monthly, and Lantern Tours in October make this a fun place to visit any day of the year.

I loved going here as a kid, there's a story behind every headstone. Or crypt. You know, whatever your burial choices... Its so interesting to see the names and demographics change over time, how later there are fewer mini-headstones marked 'baby', thank goodness, one husband with so many wives nearby because he outlived them all, etc.

Strolling through this Cemetary is a walk back into CA history. And the flora a gem!! Antique rose bushes and many flowering plants. Volunteers do a fantastic job here.
