Fairmount Cemetery Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Fairmount Cemetery is Denver’s second-oldest cemetery, founded in 1890, and the final resting place for many of Denver’s most prominent names—founders, pioneers, businessmen and women, philanthropists, and more. Fairmount is like a country club for the deceased, with its manicured lawns, incredible statuary, abundant wildlife, rose garden, and an event calendar inviting the public to spend time on the grounds. It’s common to see people walking their dogs past historic mausoleums and under the generous shade of an oak tree or zipping past on their bicycles on a nature trail that shares the property.

The same company owns Riverside Cemetery, which, as noted in Walk 12, is a barely tended, dried-out no-man’s-land in an industrial corner of the city. Both cemeteries have a list of Colorado’s who’s who buried there and historic one-of-a-kind statuary. At one time, both cemeteries were on service lines for trolley cars."
