Step back in time and learn about Victor’s 1890’s cemetery, its residents, and the history that brought them to the gold mining camp.

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 11 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at the gate or at the museum at 298 Victor Ave.
Proceeds benefit the museum’s building and restoration fund. Tickets can be purchased with cash at the tour gate or by cash or credit card at the museum, 298 Victor Ave.
Be sure to dress appropriately for mountain weather (which can include wind, cold temperatures, snow, and rain), wear good hiking shoes or boots, and bring water and sunscreen. There are no restroom facilities at the cemetery.
