Life at the Animas City Cemeteryby Julie Pickett on 12/12/14
This presentation was made by Julie Pickett at the November 8th meeting.
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. Fascinating information about this cemetery along with some highlights of the genealogical research she conducted on the pioneers who were laid to rest in it were shared via a PowerPoint presentation.
