With reluctance and after thoughtful consideration the Save the Graves of El Dorado County planning team has decided to cancel its October 24, 2020, public cemetery tour at Union Cemetery.   

Our number one priority is the health and well-being of our volunteers, our anticipated tour guests, and the many people in the community who would be involved with hosting the event. We guarantee the Save the Graves Historic Cemetery Tour will return in 2021!

But not all is lost! To continue our momentum we will provide a virtual video tour this year. This fall we will film the characters’ graveside performances and post them on our web page and social media.  Live streaming options are also being explored.


In support of distance learning we’re also hoping to work with our local educators to “package” the video performances from both years, adding in written history curriculum support materials, and making a “Meet the Pioneers of El Dorado County” on-line program available to students, teachers and parents.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. It’s been an amazing two years working in the community to bring our unique heritage back to life.
