Episode 23 - Riverside Cemetery in Denver, Colorado

Episode 23 - Riverside Cemetery in Denver, Colorado

Jennie and Dianne visit Denver, Colorado's oldest, continuously operated cemetery, Riverside. They will discuss how Riverside Cemetery replaced Denver's first cemetery, how it lost its water rights, and tell three ordinary, extraordinary stories of some of its permanent residents. While this cemetery is no longer the garden glory it once was, it still contains many wonderful monuments and symbolism of the Victorian era.
