Preservation of our Cemeteries:
You are urged to join with the Cemetery Board in an ambitious and arguably unprecedented program it has undertaken as part of the Amador County Chamber of Commerce celebration of California's Sesquicentennial in 1998-99.
The Board intends to restore all gravestones in Amador's pioneer cemeteries damaged by vandalism or the ravages of time before the celebration begins.
Ambitious? Yes. And costly!
The Board is confident that in Amador there are individuals, families, communities and organizations that share our conviction that these priceless monuments must be preserved. You are invited to participate in this worthwhile project.
The Board's mailing address and phone numbers are included here. Untold generations to follow will be the beneficiaries of the work to preserve our cemeteries today.
