Sacramento City Cemetery

Founded 1850

Sacramento City Cemetery serves as the final resting place for thousands of early Californians, ranging from former California Governors, such as Newton Booth, to prominent entrepreneurs like Mark Hopkins.

Those who died from illness, injury and natural causes populate the cemetery, including hundreds from Sacramento's early Chinese community. Entire families, including a number of children, are buried there, along with prostitutes and those who died in battle. The diversity of those buried here truly represents the Gold Rush Era.

Sacramento City Cemetery is also California Historical Landmark 566.
