Every now and then I take a walk (or a bike ride) through the historic City Cemetery on Broadway. You can plainly see that it was the high ground, the first hill South of downtown and therefore the only ground above water when the Sacramento...More

After living here 35 years, I visited this cemetery for the first time, today. It was astounding! People are buried here from the Civil War and the Gold Rush eras. You can recognize famous California historical names. The grave stones are historic and poignant. The...More

Sad, but historic. I have visited several times. The tranquility has made me realize that we will leave one day and the acceptance of that fact is crucial

You can spend a good hour here just strolling through the premises reading the tombstones. There's something really alluring about this place, with the beautiful, vibrant, lively foliage that coexists amongst the dead. Even weirder when you think about it's location: across from Target!

This cemetery is historical in a sense because many of the famous people in history were buried here. There is even a guard that watches the place. The land is considered to be the highest point in the city and it was used for evacuation...More

This is a very large, historic cemetery. Beautiful grounds with lots of flowering plants. At the entrance pick up a map for a self guided tour.

Not only are there so many founders of the Sacramento Region buried here - the "old" roses that grow throughout the cemetery are a treat to behold

I have been photographing historic cemeteries for years and this is my first out West. I try to visit the larger, Victorian style sites and this one did not let me down. Wow! Beautiful monuments, mausoleums and simple headstones. The flowers are stunning here. I...More
