Historical walking tour of Pioneer Cemetery
Submitted By Kelsey Camello
On Saturday, November 5, the Washington Township Museum of Local History is sponsoring a free historical walking tour of the Pioneer Cemetery in Irvington Ð located at 41001 Chapel Way in Fremont. All are welcome to meet at the entrance to the cemetery at 11 a.m. Join Caroline Harris as she wanders through the graves of the pioneers that came west and settled the flatlands between the San Francisco Bay and the hills. Learn about the generations of families as settlement grew and people prospered, from the California Gold Rush through incorporation as the City of Fremont. The tour duration will be about an hour and half. Visitors will leave with a respect for local history and a renewed knowledge about the people that many streets are named for.
Afterwards, tour-goers will be treated to drinks and snacks by The Dragonfly Market, located at the historic Rix house Ð 4071 Bay Street in Fremont. The tour will go on, rain or shine.
