Archaeologist Homer Thiel leads this walk through the Court Street Cemetery, where about 8,000 people were buried between 1875 and 1909. When it was closed, about half were reinterred but about half were left in place. The tour will lead you through the cemetery, show you where bodies have been found and reveal the history of this forgotten place. Tour guide will be on a microphone for better hearing and to promote social distancing. Although this tour is coordinated by the Presidio Museum, the tour will meet on the southwest corner of Stone and Speedway. Parking is available here as well.
