Donner Cross (Graves Cabin Site)

Donner Pass Road
Truckee, CA 96161

This wooden cross used to mark the site of the cabin of the Graves family from the Donner Party. The site of the cabin is now an agricultural inspection station for westbound motorists on I-80. The cross was moved about 350 northwest of the former site and now sits at the western end of Truckee Elementary School.
