History is more than just a story in a book. Many of the adventurous people who arrived in the 1800s and helped change Santa Cruz into a growing modern city are found at Evergreen Cemetery. The Evergreen Cemetery Committee works to preserve the grounds of the Cemetery as well as archive and share the stories of the people buried there.

Meets monthly. See when the next meeting is. Contact Marla Novo marla@santacruzmah.org

The Historic Landmark Committee seeks out structures that shines a light on the people that lived in them. But it’s more than telling the story of a house. We give “Blue Plaque” awards to structures of architectural or historic significance throughout Santa Cruz County.

Meets quarterly. See when the next meeting is. Contact Marla Novo marla@santacruzmah.org

Want to nominate a building for the Blue Plaque award? Submit this form and photographs of the structure to Marla Novo over email at marla@santacruzmah.org or by mail to 705 Front St., Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 attn Marla Novo.

Uncover diverse stories about Santa Cruz County. Help write the next publication about an important part of our community’s history. Past publications have been about land use, food, the Jewish community, and unknown figures who once lived in Santa Cruz.
