Old City Cemetery Tour - "Misbehaving Politicians" - Saturday, October 5th  10:00 am

Even before California was a state, its officials were busy fleecing the electorate. Pork barrel legislators, fraudulent election workers, dueling senators and land-grabbing governors are just a few of the nice folks you’ll meet.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance. Tours are free; however, donations are appreciated and benefit cemetery preservation. For more information, call 916-448-0811 or 916-264-7839.
