There is no denying that the city of Sonoma has been a historical city. It fact it can be called the birthplace of the California Republic. While many of the city’s historical buildings and sites can be found at Sonoma State Historic Park, many of the Sonoma Valley’s pioneers have found rest just a few blocks away at historic Mountain Cemetery.

Founded in 1841, Mountain Cemetery is located at 90 First Street West a few blocks away from Sonoma Historic Park. It is open daily from 8 am to 5 pm. For those planning to visit the cemetery, I suggest that you be physically fit. I had known that the cemetery was located along some hills, but what I didn’t realize is that it is literally located on the side of one.
