Project 365, Day 83; Saint Raymond Church, 1860

I spent a recent afternoon walking around Dublin, California’s Heritage Park and Museum. Home to the 1856 Murray Schoolhouse, St. Raymond’s first church erected in 1860, and the Dublin Pioneer Cemetery. The park also has a couple of old barns and farm equipment.

I’ll begin the series with St. Raymond’s Catholic Church



The history here is amazing, going back to the 1800’s. The land was donated by Michael Murray and Jeremiah Fallon, who was one of the rescuers of the ill-fated Donner Party in the Sierra.  They are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery behind the church.


Tom Donlon, 1834-1859, came to Dublin, California from Ireland, worked on the construction of the church, fell from the roof and died. He is also buried in the cemetery behind the church.

I walked around the church taking photos, then moved on to the cemetery to check it out and take more photos. The wind was picking up, clouds were pouring over the nearby hills,  the sun disappeared.
