Free – $5
Buried History: Veterans of the Surface Creek Valley - Cedaredge Cemetery (Colorado)
It’s not just the living who have a story to tell. This is a tribute to all who have passed, and a chance for you to hear their stories.


The SCVHS members and others have been digging up stories about the past. There isn’t anyone living that can tell some of these stories, but we have our sources.

There are thousands of stories to tell; we will only be telling a few, at least for now. We will honor their lives, accomplishments, goals, and tragedies. Some still have family here in the area, but most do not. Some have very long lives and did much, others lives were cut short before they had a chance to fulfill their destinies. Some served their Country during the Civil War, others more recently, but they all served.

Please, come and hear their stories. Space is for this event is limited and priority will be given to guests who have preregistered. The program will last about 50 min, and involves walking on the cemetery grounds, which contains some obstacles and uneven surfaces, especially with limited evening lighting. Small groups will be spaced about 15 min apart to allow social distancing. In the tradition of Día de Muertos, they live on because we remember them, choose the time that best suits you.
