Spend a beautiful afternoon exploring this picturesque old cemetery adjacent to the old mining town of Roslyn. Veterans, immigrants, victims of mining accidents and several generations of local families are all buried here.

I've never seen a cemetery like this one! It's arranged into several sections by race/ethnic group, fraternal organization, etc. Interesting variety of styles of monuments and tombstones. Nice to walk through and get a sense of some of the local history including immigration.
