Of Sacramento City Cemetery

— Est. 1849 —

The unmarked last resting place of over three thousand pioneers, their exact place of burial, somewhere between the north border of Broadway and the north portion of the cemetery, and between 9th and 11th Streets, known but to their God.

Buried in the Tier Grounds were nearly a thousand victims of the 1850 Cholera Epidemic and some two hundred Chinese immigrants who died and were buried there between 1851 and 1855.
