Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery 115 Amelia Street, Sutter Creek

They came from Austria, Poland, Ireland and Italy to settle in the new community of Sutter Creek.  Here they died and were buried in the small graveyard that surrounds the little Catholic church they so faithfully attended.  Come take a self-guided walk through one of the county’s oldest cemeteries and learn about some of the families who lived here when the community was new.  See the headstone of Mary Mahoney, the first to be buried in the cemetery in 1858; that of little Giuseppe Ramasotti who died the day he was born; and the tombstone of Thomas Brady, born when George Washington was President, and died after the Civil War.  Elaborate headstones and simple markers give clues about the lives of Sutter Creek’s families who have gone before us. A pamphlet which will correspond to numbered grave sites will be available during the tour.  Members of the Amador County Historic Cemeteries Board will also be available to answer questions.
