In 1854 Sacramento was prospering notably in spite of the floods, fires and epidemics that had besieged her. German-born citizens and men of German ancestry decided to organize a "Turn Verein", as was the custom in their homeland. They circulated a proclamation and assembled on June 2, 1854 to establish the Sacramento Turn Verein.

In 1859 the Sacramento Turn Verein purchased a piece of property on K Street between 9th and 10th Streets where the first Turn Verein Hall was built that same year. Many unforgettable events, including gymnastic tournaments and singing festivals were held in this hall. The present Turn Verein Hall was built in 1925 and is located at 3349 J Street.

On March 16, 1883 the Sacramento Turn Verein purchased this cemetery plot for $150.00 as a permanent resting place for deceased Turners. Several individuals buried here died before plot was purchased and were moved here later.

The members of the Sacramento Turn Verein are proud of the many contributions Californians of German ancestry have made to the Sacramento community.
