  • VERY OLD cemetery. There are 26 cemeteries in one. Some of the sections are fenced around the whole area, such as the Croatian and Masonic. In that older section there were a lot of family plots with a cement curbed border, some even had pretty flowers planted. If you’re an emotional person, be prepared, there are a lot of graves with babies and young children. The curbs and fencing around them make it hard to not take notice of the sizes of graves and the enormity of how many there are. If you’re not a person that can walk a distance up hills and on uneven ground, this is definitely not accessible for you. If you’re handy, or like gardening, and would like to do something special there, most of the older graves need a bit of care taking. Mostly just clearing the weeds and wiping off the markers. A few of the plots with a fence around them need to have the fence stood back up and supported. It’s a reverent place that seems to be respected and cared for. There are new graves and stones as well as old ones. Surprisingly it didn’t seem creepy. Just sad. There is a lot of history there. Take some time to look up the mining disaster and the information about the pandemic in the early 1920’s. My son looked it up and it doesn’t seem to be a haunted spot.
  • Interesting how the cemetery is organized. Sectioned basically by ethnicity, as each had a cultural/fraternal organization that also provided burial insurance. We had a half hour to kill before the cafe opened and this was perfect.
