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.

Request for Ideas for Future Uses of the Yolo County Courthouse

Yolo County has issued a Request for Ideas in an effort to solicit creative input regarding the future use of the Yolo County Courthouse.  When the Yolo Superior Court completes the construction of their new facility in 2015, the existing building and property will revert to the county for its use upon the court’s departure.  The Board of Supervisors recognizes this as an opportunity to consider alternative and innovative approaches to the reuse of the facility.
