history: Mt. View Cemetery and Auto Row

History. Where would we be without it? :-)

There's a nice post on Today in Montclair about the Mountain View Cemetery. Wandering around a place full of dead people may not be your idea of fun, but it is beautiful, and as the post informs us, there are a lot of prominent people from Oakland's past buried there.

Over at one of my favorite Oakland blogs, City Homestead, there's a nice post on the history of Auto Row. Interesting stuff, and good things to know as people discuss the future of Auto Row.

There is a blog about the famous people buried at Mountain View Cemetery at www.livesofthedead.com

It's put together by an Oakland Planning Commissioner. Go figure.
