1. California Military Museum: General Albert Winn. In 1878, Winn moved to Sonoma where he died August 26, 1883 on a ranch owned by his step-son near El Verano, Sonoma County. He was buried at the Pioneer Plot in the City Cemetery in Sacramento. The funeral Procession began from Pioneer Hall on 7th Street and included members of every Fraternal body and civic organization as well as the entire congregation of Grace Church. This remarkable individual who had been instrumental in the founding of so many civic, religious and fraternal organizations, was memorialized by the city of Sacramento with the naming of Winn Park at 28th and P Streets (dedicated by the NSGW August 8, 1917), and the A. M. Winn Elementary School at 3351 Explorer Drive (dedicated by the NSGW and NDGW on April 8, 1962). (Submitted on October 13, 2008.)

had been neglected over the years. New State of California Bronze Plaques were crafted by one of the members, and a newly designed Sunset Bronze Plaque and Bronze Bear were designed by another member and his wife to replace the original ones which were stolen. Also the inscription on the Monument was repainted by one of the membersí wife. Many of Sunsetís members built a new brick planter around the base of the Monument, and also did a complete cleaning of the Monument from top to bottom of the lofty obelisk. Sunsetís members also restored the Sunset Parlor Park Bench, rebuilt by one of the members. On July 10, 2004, Sunset Parlor #26 hosted the Founders Day Dinner attended by parlor members and guests statewide, and the following day the Founders
Day Re-dedication Ceremony of the Monument took place in the Pioneer Section of the Old City Cemetery, and a new Bronze Native Sons of the Golden West Plaque was unveiled by the presiding Grand Parlor President and his Grand Parlor Officers. Sunsetís members continue to maintain the monument on a regular basis by keeping the monument clean and planting new flowers throughout the year.
