Old City Cemetery Tour - "Curtain Up!"

Join us for a tour on June 7th 2014 focusing on Sacramento's rich theatrical history. From 1849 to the 1920’s, Sacramento was California’s “Theatre Town”. It was second to none in California.  Let us entertain you as we share the comedic, dramatic and tragic stories of cemetery residents who were part of Sacramento’s theatre scene. 

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.
