One of California’s historic cemeteries, in existence for 160 years (since 1855), is now also California’s newest arboretum, featuring a collection of 150+ species of native and CA adapted plants uniquely suited for Yolo County’s climate, soil and water. We are also the home of Gallery 1855, one of the finest premier art galleries in Northern California, featuring monthly shows by international, national, regional and local artists. Please join us for a free open house/reception on the second Sunday of every month from 1 P.M. - 4 P.M., when you can meet the artist, enjoy the art, and tour our 60+ gardens and our extensive grounds. We offer twelve months of art plus twelve months of blooms for your pleasure. As an historic and contemporary cemetery, you will find the unique stones and intimate stories that comprise the history of our county. Tours are available by appointment or on specific dates.

Veterans Day Ceremony

On Wednesday, November 11, 2015, members of the community are invited to honor America’s Veterans and celebrate their contributions to our way of life. The Davis Cemetery District has partnered with the Davis Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6949 to commemorate the veterans of our country with a special ceremony. The Davis Brass Ensemble will perform patriotic songs from 10:30 am to 11:00am followed by the ceremony from 11-12:00pm at the beautiful grounds of the Davis Cemetery & Arboretum (820 Pole Line Road, Davis, CA 95618). Dedicated volunteers and Boy Scouts will pay tribute to our fallen veterans by placing flags on their grave sites prior to the ceremony.

The presentation of colors performed by UC Davis Reserve Officers Training Corps will commence the ceremony at 11:00am. Commander Jay Brookman Lt. Col, Retired United States Air Force and Commander of VFW Post 6949 will emcee and conduct the pledge of allegiance. Pastor Exter Hardy of the Pole Line Road Baptist Church in Davis will provide the invocation. Guest speaker Mayor Dan Wolk is a lifelong resident of Davis and has been on the Davis City Council since 2011. Davis resident Francis Resta, a World War II veteran with the U.S. Army, will be the keynote speaker. Resta has earned the Purple Heart and Bronze Star medals, plus the Combat Infantryman’s Badge and is a member of VFW Post 6949 in Davis. In his retirement years he has worked tirelessly on programs that assist and help veterans including authoring a book on post-traumatic stress disorder and promoting the Honor Flight Program. A rousing performance by the Davis High Madrigal Singers under the direction of Karen Gardias will end the ceremony. This special tribute to the brave men and women of our armed services is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please contact Davis Cemetery & Arboretum at cemetery@dcn.org for questions or volunteer information.
