As you wander through Columbia Cemetery, a National Register of Historic Places treasure and local landmark, Eben G. Fine, Mary Rippon, Tom Horn, Jane Doe, James Maxwell and Rocky Mountain Joe are just a few of the historical characters that will come to life at this favorite community event.
Neva Romero, one of Los Seis de Boulder, will share her moving story as a Chicano Rights activist in Boulder in the 1970s.
Expect a special appearance by the wealthy widow Kate Harbeck from New York as well.
It’s an afternoon you won’t forget as we leap into the Halloween spirit with vintage hearses, mourners in period costumes, live music, a children’s cemetery scavenger hunt and a burial re-enactment.
Discover facts about Columbia Cemetery, meet local history authors, visit with psychics, learn about green burials and much more.
