This cemetery is located southwest of downtown Cherry Creek.
This cemetery is in two sections with a large empty area between, perhaps for parking. No one knows. There has been a long and varied history of this area. miners, sheepmen, ranchers, businessmen, etc.
The cemeteries at Cherry Creek are typical mining camp cemeteries. Nice headstones on some, many wooden markers that cannot be read, surrounded by sage brush and dirt!
I walked and read this cemetery from all existing markers in the summer of 1999.
