Thousands of people emigrated to California with the dream of riches for themselves and have found their final rest in these hallowed grounds.

The exact date that the cemetery was founded is unknown. The earliest known graves date from 1849. In the past it has been known by various names: Sutter Mill, Coloma Protestant, and Vineyard.

More than 600 pioneers and their families are buried here. The graves contain the remains of those drawn to Coloma in search for gold. All races and many nations are represented. Together they rest in this peaceful setting.

Help us preserve these graves and markers for future generations. Desecration of a cemetery is a felony.
