Sac. Bee story

Thursdays Sacramento Bee featured a story by Mike Dunne about a former TB sanatorium in Weimar,Placer Co. CA .
The author himself was a childhood inmate there and his story is haunting, as is his description of the cemetery on the grounds were a estimated 1400 former patients are buried. graves nameless for the most part except, for incomplete record book listings.It is a beautiful area for hiking and open to the public.I will have to plan a visit.
