The Rockville Cemetery on Suisun Valley Road consists of more than 30 acres of land.

The oldest areas of the cemetery, opened in 1853, are fully developed with burial areas,

 an historic chapel, and District office. Adjacent to the old cemetery is land added on

 by the District in the 1980s and 1990s, including eight additional acres of undeveloped

 land planned for future growth, as well as an additional 18.5 acres of land currently

 being leased.

 

In October 10, 2000 the Niche Section of the Cemetery, surrounded by landscaping

and located under a covered pavilion, was opened to District Residents.

 

The Board of Supervisors of Solano County organized Rockville Cemetery as a public cemetery on March 2, 1925. Since then, we have continued to improve the services to meet the ever-increasing and changing needs of the communities we serve.

Rockville Cemetery dates back to 1851, although the first stone found was dated 1852. This church and cemetery is a State Historical Landmark and is nice to visit even if you do not have a loved one buried here.

The Solano Historical Society uses the Chapel and Cemetery to host their annual Pioneer Days. Local schools use the facility as learning centers for young children.

Solano County was the gateway between the bay and the central valley and many pioneers passed our valleys on their way to the Gold Country only later to return to reap the agricultural riches of the county and to put down permanent roots in California.
 
We look forward to information about the pioneering families at rest at Rockville Cemetery. We would like to extend an invitation to descendants of the pioneering families who settled in this area and are buried at our cemetery. Genealogy research on the internet is a most personally rewarding activity
