On Saturday, August 18th the Eagle County Historical Society will present a tour of the Greenwood Cemetery in Red Cliff, Colorado. Actors will share the stories of Eagle County’s most memorable pioneers.
Red Cliff is the oldest town in the county. The first grave in the mountain cemetery dates back to 1880. Over 600 people are buried in the graveyard, including some of the most notable (and sometimes notorious) pioneers of the county.
The first tour will begin at 10 AM. The last tour will begin at 3:00 PM and end about 4:30.
Participants should be prepared for an approximate 90 minute tour, which will involve walking on uneven ground.
