Event description

Description

Walk into the past in California’s most historic cemetery to meet some of our state’s early movers and shakers along with the monuments that preserve their memory. We will visit Jack London's stepfather John, as well as his nanny, Jenny Prentiss, and members of the historic Civil War plot. This year also marks the 150th anniversary of the 1869 arrival of the Transcontinental railroad to Alameda and Oakland. Many of the celebration's participants are at Mountain View. A hilly walk.

Leader: Dennis Evanosky is the publisher of the Alameda Sun and a free-lance writer with eleven published books, including East Bay Then and Now; San Francisco Then & Now; Lost San Francisco, Oakland’s Laurel District; Alameda’s Architectural Treasure Chest and two books about Mountain View Cemetery. Dennis has been a docent at Mountain View Cemetery and at the Pardee Home Museum for over twenty-one years.
