Museum to host Spring Cemetery Tour

The Museum of the San Ramon Valley is hosting a spring tour of the Alamo Cemetery beginning at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 28. Participants should meet at the front gate of the cemetery located at the end of El Portal near La Gonda Way in Danville. The tour is free but donations are always welcome.

Experienced docents will guide visitors through this rustic, park-like cemetery while sharing stories of San Ramon Valley's earliest pioneers, including members of the Baldwin, Bollinger, Boone, Jones, Stone and Wood families. The first recorded burial was that of a young girl in 1856 and more than 1,800 burials have taken place since then. The Alamo Cemetery is part of the Alamo/Lafayette Cemetery District, which was established in 1937.
