Old St. Patrick's Catholic Cemetery

Grass Valley

 

 

 

Entrance to Old St. Patrick's Cemetery is on the corner of Church St. and Chapel St. in Grass Valley.

The first set of photographs were taken in the area you see behind the fence.  The years, weather and vandalism has taken a toll on many of the gravestones.  They are very difficult to read.  Please advise me of any corrections that seem obvious.  The trees in this particular area are old cedar.  I am sure they have not helped the condition of the stones.  More photos will be added to this section.
