Photos of Spooky Old Riverside Cemetery
Denver's oldest active cemetery is located just northeast of downtown. Riverside cemetery opened in 1876.
Its a bit run down and weathered but has a lot of character and many of Denver's pioneers and early important citizens are buried there. The cemetery covers 77 acres and is near the Platte river, it has a lot of really interesting tombstones and grave markers, some are in poor condition due to the elements and vandals but this old grave yard still has charm. Riverside cemetery is more spooky looking than the other local cemeteries. This is the kind of cemetery you might expect to see in a good horror movie! By day, quiet and charming, by night, quiet and ..........well, who knows what or who may be lurking behind that headstone or in that crypt!
Riverside cemetery is still open for service and they need the business, keep them in mind!
