Evergreen at Dusk: Cemetery History Tours

Thursdays, Oct. 6, 13, 20 & 27, 2022 – 4 – 6:45pm

Set out on a 45-minute self-driven adventure uncovering the stories and tombstones of Evergreen Cemetery.

Chase the shadows and discover the secrets found within Evergreen Cemetery, one of the oldest public cemeteries in California, on a self-guided tour of the grounds.

Bring your curiosity (and maybe dress up) as you explore the final resting place of Santa Cruz’s early settlers. The 45-minute tour is a self-driven adventure of the people who made Santa Cruz what it is today. Designed for daring, curious, and history-loving households this tour is great for all ages!

Registration is limited to one group per tour to ensure plenty of spacing as groups individually explore the cemetery. Each tour should take 30-45 minutes to complete. The time you select is when your group/household tour starts, we recommend arriving 5-10 minutes early to ensure you can begin right on time.

Upon arrival, find the MAH table by the iconic Evergreen Arch. We will give you the printed map and guide with a brief introduction to Evergreen’s history. Following the welcome, you are then free to follow the map as it guides you back in time. Go at your own pace and explore the grounds. We’ll be there on-site to help you get from tombstone to tombstone if assistance is needed. This event takes place outdoors and masks are optional.

Want to explore Evergreen with a tour guide?  Sign-up for the private guided tour at 6 pm!  This tour will be led by a MAH staffer and is available for one household per night. Dive deeper into the stories and history of the cemetery. This tour has to be on your Santa Cruz Bucketlist! Reserve your spot here.
