Hamilton Square is located on the southwest side of Sacramento Historic City Cemetery, near the Old Mortuary Chapel. The garden is the burial site of William Stephen Hamilton, the youngest son of Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasurer of the United States. Stephen Hamilton came to California in 1849 and died in Sacramento in 1850.  He is the cemetery’s most restless resident.  He died once (1850), was exhumed twice (1877, 1889) and buried three times in three different locations. Visitors are encouraged to visit this garden any time of the year on self-guided tours.

California Native Plant Garden

About the garden. The California Native Plant Demonstration Garden is located in the southeast corner of the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery, along Riverside Blvd. Since January 1997, our goal is to show our visitors that California native plants can not only be drought tolerant, but that they are also beautiful and can be incorporated into the home landscape. When you visit the garden, you will discover and learn about plants and grasses that can be lawn substitutes, that attract wildlife and beneficial insects, have medicinal and cultural uses and that are also edible! River friendly natives and Arboretum All-Stars can also be found here. 

Sacramento Historic Rose Garden is a composed mostly of old or antique roses collected from cemeteries, old home sites and along roadsides in northern California. It was conceived and established by Fred Boutin, an internationally recognized rosarian and authority on "found roses," and Jean Travis, a member of the Heritage Rose Group. Members are working to collect, plant, and maintain those roses which were popular from the Gold Rush era through the Victorian/Edwardian era.
