Sacramento Pioneer Association - Founded 1854The 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 the 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, Gen. Albert Maver Winn, and James McClatchy. Honorary members buried elsewhere include Pres. U.S. Grant, James Marshall, and Gen. John Sutter.
