Pioneers in Petticoats

Pioneers in Petticoats

Coming to California in the mid-1850s in a covered wagon was not a luxury vacation. As women and children walked (not rode) across the plains, they picked up buffalo dung to use for fuel, and had not bathrooms or running water.

Come enjoy a spring stroll through Sacramento's Historic City Cemetery for this enjoyable and educational tour. Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway. Free parking is available on surrounding streets. For more information, call (916) 448-0811.
