34th Annual Tombstone Tour: Fairmount Cemetery

October 23, 2021

History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO


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.
