Sutter's Fort to Commemorate 175 Years on August 16!

Sutter's Fort to Commemorate 175 Years on August 16!

On Saturday, August 16, 2014, California State Parks and Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) will present a special “Hands on History” event commemorating John Sutter’s arrival to the Sacramento region 175 years ago that led to the building of Sutter’s Fort, the discovery of gold and the founding of the City of Sacramento.  As background, John Sutter landed on the bank of the American River in August of 1839 and went on to found the New Helvetia area on which Sutter’s Fort was later constructed.

Old City Cemetery Tour - "Bad Poetry & Purple Prose"

Old City Cemetery Tour - "Bad Poetry & Purple Prose"

Other than drinking and brawling, the pioneers enjoyed nothing better than sappy love poetry.  They both loved and dreadfully abused the English language, and we’ll visit these perpetrators of sentimental doggerel and overblown purple prose to read from their best forgotten “classics.”  Join us on Saturday morning, August 16th at 10:00 am.

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.
