The monument encompasses more than 116 acres of land and features a memorial garden of Chavez’s burial place.

This national landmark is located along State Route 58, a short drive outside Tehachapi and Bakersfield. It’s one of the most well-known historical attractions in the Central Valley of California and you’ll find several interesting things to do at the site. You’ll see the Memorial Garden, the Chavez Gravesite, and a fountain here. You can also see the office of Cesar Chavez that’s been preserved in its original state since his death, as well as a series of art exhibits.
