Plaque:

None

Notes:

I'm not certain the cemetery is historical, as many graves are fairly recent. But it's the only thing around here aside from the stone ruins, so it is probably related to the old town.


From the guidebook:

The town, center of a large placer mining section, was named for a Mexican who raised vegetables and melons for the miners. It was settled in the early 1850s with a large population of Mexicans, French, Chileans, and Italians.
