Sacramento Pioneer Association - Founded 1854

The Sacramento Pioneer Association was founded by men who came to California before 1850 and wished to preserve the memories of the epochal events in the Gold Rush and earliest days of Sacramento. They purchased much of Pioneer Grove from the City in 1861 and acquired more area over the next forty years.
Among the founding members resting here are Mark Hopkins, General Albert Maver Winn, and James McClatchy. Honorary members buried elsewhere include President Ulysses S. Grant, James Marshall, and General John Sutter.
By 1855, the Association had 200 members and in 2008, over 300 men and women who perpetuate the founders' mission and care of the grove.
