Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. We don’t have anything exactly like that, but we do have some very special mausoleums at the Historic City Cemetery. Join us for a rare glimpse of the architecture, the stories and the secrets that hide inside these magnificent monuments to Sacramento's golden age. Since we don’t have permission from the owners and due to the fragility of the monuments, we won’t be able to go inside them.
