Voltaire, the great French historian, once defined history as “a trick we play on the dead.” Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel and a cast of star CU-Denver students and grads will explore that idea with a walking tour of Colorado’s largest and most famous necropolis.

Meet the unusually lively occupants of subterranean dwellings. Re-enactors will portray notable occupants, from mayors to madams, including the good, the bad, and the ugly. Free tomb side taxi service provided by the Model A Ford Club of Colorado, weather permitting.
