Old City Cemetery: Paranormal Investigations

Explore what's out there

New! Old City Cemetery Paranormal Investigations

Storied and stately, Sacramento’s Historic Old City Cemetery mirrors the city’s history, from its wild Gold Rush birth to today. Visitors often say the Cemetery is alive with energy. Find out for yourself – join our Old City Cemetery Paranormal Investigations!

Just like our Old Sac Paranormal Investigations, the Old City Cemetery Investigations provide you the investigation tools, tell you the tales, and give you room and time to explore what may otherwise remain unseen.

Each two-hour investigation focuses on a different historic section of the cemetery – marking not only well-known city founders but scores of ordinary citizens who shaped Sacramento. Their legacies remain – of heroism and industry and heartbreak.

  • Guests can use provided monitoring devices or bring their own handheld devices, and download paranormal phone apps for use on the investigation
  • Tickets are $50 per person
  • Each investigation comprises 15 guests
  • Parking is available to guests within the Cemetery main entrance off Broadway, about 100 yards west of the intersection of Broadway and Riverside Boulevard
