ALAMO -- Gravesite residents of the Alamo Cemetery will "come alive" during a tour offered by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley on Saturday, April 26, at 10 a.m.
Docents will guide visitors through the cemetery, located a block and a half east of Danville Boulevard on El Portal at the border of Alamo and Danville. They will tell stories about the lives of people buried there.
Visitors will get to meet historical re-enactors, standing at their gravesites, who will portray the area's gold rush pioneers, such as Mary Anne Jones, Travis Boone, and R.O. Baldwin and his wife Mary, Charles Wood and his daughter Charlotte Wood. Docent Rose Peters will lead the tour.
Reservations are not necessary. A requested donation of $4 per person for the tour will help support the history museum, located in the Danville Depot.
