Step back in time and learn about Victor’s 1890’s cemetery, its resident politicians, pioneers, and families, and the history that brought them to the gold mining camp. This event is sponsored by the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum and will be held on the first and third Saturdays, June through September. Check VictorMuseum.com for schedules.
Local historian Veldean Myers will provide insights into the cemetery, its history and some of the residents who made up the human element of the gold rush. The event will be held at the Sunnyside Cemetery which is south of town on Seventh Street. Meet just outside the gate in Pauper’s Field by 1 p.m.
