Here’s what some of our recent visitors say about the Historic Old City Cemetery:

What better way to cool off on a hot August night than with a few chills? Spine-tinglers await in Sacramento’s Historic City Cemetery.

Have some fun exploring old cemeteries.  No telling what stories you will find.


To historians, locals, and all those with ancestors buried there, or for genealogical research. It’s also a great place to have a small quiet picnic!

Don’t just go to one tour. Each one is different. Even if you’ve been to a similar tour in the past, go again. You’ll hear completely different stories. As a Sac native, I’m trying to explore local history and if you’re a native, or a visitor, this is a MUST do.

I always bring a book and a lunch and spend a couple of hours just enjoying the serenity and the beauty of the grounds. Kudos to all those volunteers who make this one of the best cemeteries I’ve ever visited!

Our group of 10 took a tour yesterday, Saturday morning. Gene was our tour guide and gave us an excellent tour. My wife and I look forward to visiting again soon.
