Denver Riverside Cemetery
Rest In Peace
Riverside Cemetery, founded in 1876, is Denver’s oldest operating cemetery and is designated as a National Historic District. Located just two miles north of downtown in the center of an industrial area, Riverside is truly a unique cultural treasure that has been widely ignored for many years. I've lived in Denver for 43 years, rarely heard of it and visited once last October during one of their evening/night tours, when this picture was taken. Over two hours of Colorado/Denver history is presented. We didn't see a ghost, but if we waited long enough in silence, perhaps.
