Historic Haunts: A Tour Of The Old Auburn Cemetery Coming May 4th

The Placer County Museums Community Education Program presents Historic Haunts: A Tour of the Old Auburn Cemetery on Sunday, May 4th.
The Old Auburn Cemetery has a rich history and if you stroll through any part of it you will meet the people from our past who developed and molded the foundation upon which we all live.

The tour will last about an hour and includes 18 notable plots. Also, the Native Sons of the Golden West will have their restored 1860s hearse and 1890s mudwagon on display for photographs.

The first tour begins at 1:30 p.m., and the last tour will start no later than 3:45 p.m. You do not need to reserve your tour, simply show up and register and they'll organize everyone into tour groups.

The tour will start at the back left side of the cemetery as you walk in the main gate. This is a rain or shine event, so please dress accordingly and wear comfortable shoes. Free bottled water will be available.

The Old Auburn Cemetery is located at 170 Fulweiler Avenue across from the Placer County Administrative Center, where you may also park. Please remember that there are no restrooms in or near the cemetery, so plan accordingly.

The tour is FREE!  For more information, please call the Placer County Museums' office at 530-889-6500.
