Are there still burial spaces open at Fairmount?
Fairmount Cemetery in Denver, Colorado is the area’s second oldest cemetery. Many natives have stories they tell of their own personal experiences here- from learning to drive (not recommended), to telling ghost stories about the people buried here, to the serene scenery and wildlife. So it’s no wonder people think Fairmount Cemetery is “full”. The truth is, the multi-acre property has built several new areas, and even opened areas previously unavailable. What does this mean for you?
