The Animas City Cemetery is the oldest existing community cemetery in La Plata County and the only remaining cemetery that pre-dates the establishment of Durango. The cemetery is associated with Animas City (established in 1876) and it is an important historic reminder of that early settlement. Please join us as local cemetery researcher Julie Pickett shares fascinating information about this cemetery along with highlights of the genealogical research she conducted on the pioneers who were laid to rest in it.
