Join the effort to imagine Evergreen Cemetery as an inspiring site for learning local history and celebrate the restoration of its historic arch.

Help maintain the final resting place of all the 1800's gold prospectors, artists, Chinese immigrants, mountain men, and forgotten pioneers buried in Evergreen Cemetery from 9:30-11am. Then, at 11:00am we will have a special dedication of the newly restored gateway. The Newcomb Family first installed this iconic arch in 1920. Now, one hundred years later, members of the Newcomb family are responsible for restoring it back to its original glory.

As one of the MAH's offsite locations, the cemetery is maintained primarily by volunteer-led efforts. This day is open to all and is a great introduction to the work being done to preserve this local treasure.

Stay till noon to get a free tour of the cemetery.
