For anyone interested in the remarkable history of Riverside Cemetery, there is no better single resource than Annette Student’s book, published in 2006, called “Riverside Cemetery: Where History Lies.”
As the Colorado Geneology Blog, cogenblog, said when the book was published last year:
A new book has just been published about Denver’s historic Riverside Cemetery, Colorado’s oldest “cemetery park” founded in 1876 (the same year Colorado became a state). According to the author, Annette L. Student, the book not only includes a history of the cemetery, but also 114 biographies of interesting Colorado citizens, including governors and other notable citizens ranging from cattlemen to prostitutes.
You can pick up the book in a number of bookstores locally:
Barnes and Noble (at a number of their Denver area stores)
Tattered Cover (online or at their stores – check for locations).
Colorado Historical Society bookstore (10% discount to CHS members; all copies signed by author).
The book is also available from the author; if you order directly, your copy can be personally autographed. You can contact the author by writing to the following address:
