Sunnyside Cemetery Tours

May 23, 2020

298 Victor Ave, Victor, CO

Step back in time and learn about Victor’s 1890’s cemetery, its resident politicians, and the history that brought them to the gold mining camp. This event is sponsored by the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum and will be held Saturday, May 23.

Local historian Veldean Myers will provide insights into the cemetery, its history and some of the residents who made up the human element of the gold rush. The event will be held at the Sunnyside Cemetery which is south of town on Seventh Street. Meet just outside the gate in Pauper’s Field by 10 a.m.

Pre-paid credit card reservations are encouraged and can be made at VictorMuseum.com. Tickets at the event are by cash only. All tickets are $10 per person. Proceeds benefit the museum’s building and restoration fund.

Be sure to dress appropriately for spring mountain weather (which can include wind, cold temperatures, snow, and rain), wear good hiking shoes or boots, and bring water and sunscreen. There are no restroom facilities at the cemetery.

Cemetery tours will be offered all summer long as well on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. See VictorMuseum.com for more info.
