Listed as on Hwy 49-Grass Valley Hwy...turn at Marguerite Mine Rd. and then left up the hill. Road runs parallel with Hwy 49. It appears that the cemetery is off limits (ie:locked gates), but I saw 2 headstones and a large red urn I have showed in one of the pictures. This is quite an old historical cemetery and has an interesting story that I researched.

The historic town of Auburn in Placer County, was once the home of thousands of Chinese workers in the early 19th century. The Chinese Cemetery, a 2-1/2 acre site on Highway 49 which still contains the eleven burials. All other remains were removed, either returned to China for burial or moved to a local cemetery for reinterment.
