Women of Placerville Union Cemetery Walking Tour

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Women of Placerville Union Cemetery Walking Tour | May 11, 2024

Take the notable woman (or man) in your life on a walking tour of the notable women of Union Cemetery in Placerville.

The male-centric culture of the late 1880s and early 1900s resulted in many women’s stories getting lost or never being told at all. Not on our watch! Union Cemetery is full of strong, accomplished women of character. We’ll celebrate their lives by telling their stories and placing flowers on their graves.

This Save the Graves free event is open to all ages. Limited parking will be available in the cemetery for those needing it. Others, please park on the street and walk in. Likewise, limited graveside seating will be available. Wear sturdy shoes. Terrain is irregular.
