On October 22, Jana Haertl, museum volunteer, took participants on a virtual tour of the Alamo Cemetery.
Established in the 1850's the cemetery is the final resting place to the many early families who established and built this valley. Jana shared stories of the history of the Alamo Cemetery and families such as Baldwin, Stone, Wood and, Bollinger to mention just a few.
This little jewel is tucked away at the bend of El Portal just off Danville Blvd on the border of Alamo and Danville. You may have passed it on your way to Hap Magee Park without giving it a second thought. It’s actually a peaceful resting place to stroll through and admire the headstones of many pioneer families in a park-like atmosphere.
