The Sacramento Historic City Cemetery is the site of three designated gardens, including a California Native Plant Demonstration Garden, Hamilton Square Perennial Plant Club garden, and the Sacramento Historic Rose Garden. Volunteers established these gardens over 25 years ago to beautify the cemetery, which was founded in 1849 during the height of the Gold Rush and had fallen into disrepair. The rose garden is the recipient of multiple international awards for its efforts to collect and preserve old roses found in historic sites throughout California's Mother Lode.
