Every visit to Mountain View Cemetery is like a trip back in time. It is like shaking hands with railroad builder Charles Crocker, admiring the brushwork of Yosemite landscape painter Thomas Hill, and hearing architect Julia Morgan rhapsodize about her designs for Hearst Castle.

Designed by noted landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (whose other credits include New York's Central Park), Mountain View Cemetery's acreage offers spectacular vistas of the San Francisco Bay's surrounding areas. The cemetery is an impressive repository of local and state history.

Beginning 2024:

Docent-led tours begin at 10am the second and fourth Saturdays of each month and last approximately 2 hours. There are several tour options. Please check our Calendar section for specific tours and dates. No RSVP is necessary, simply meet in front of the administrative office and wear comfortable walking shoes.

If you would like to arrange for a private group tour at another time tailored to your specific needs, please contact us at Mountain View Cemetery at (510) 658-2588 or email your request to info@mountainviewcemetery.org.

Also please check our Calendar for other events.
