Riverside in the news

November 15, 2007 – 6:20 pm

Many of you may have seen the terrific article by Tom McGhee in The Denver Post on October 29th.

Now Adam Goldstein has written a great article on the history of Riverside that was just published in the Commerce City Sentinel Express. The article talks about the many veterans who are buried at riverside, from the Mexican American War to the Gulf War. He interviews Chuck Counts, who says:

The cemetery opened in 1876.
Until the turn of the century, it was the pre-eminent cemetery (in Denver). This is Colorado history right here … I look at it that it’s a treasure.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.
