The Gate of Heaven is located at the southwest corner of Wyoming N.E.
and Paseo del Norte N.E. It is 3 miles east of the I-25 freeway and Paseo
del Norte exit.
Gate of Heaven is Catholic Cemetery owned and maintained by the Archdiocese
of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was dedicated in late 1965 by the Archbishop
and Monsignor of the Santa Fe Archdiocese. I have not found out the
exact acreage involved, but my husband estimates it at 2 acres.
The Cemetery has a large Catholic Chapel, indoor mausoleum as well
as several patio crypts. I logged just over 5000 graves, and most feel
that is pretty accurate. There is about 30% more spaces available (developed)
with another 10,000 that could be developed in an adjacent site.
I transcribed these graves over a period of three months. The listing
is complete, as of 10/31/2001.
