Brichetto Tomb: Tracy California

The Brichetto tomb is high on a hill overlooking the gold course at the intersection of 120 and 580.  You can see it from the freeway.  I drove up by the golf course and captures some distance shots, and close shots belong to someone else from the internet.  G. Joseph Brichetto came to the United States from Italy.  He had only $40.  However when he died he was worth over $300,000, which was a big deal in 1916.  He was a wheat farmer, and much of San Joaquin was devoted to wheat farming at the time.  He built a place for all of his children to be buried.
