While it was a bit cold today, we enjoyed having a good look around and feeling amazed at how expansive this place is? YMMV

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.

It's very different than other cemeteries and fascinating. Go and give a bit of cash to the restoration effort. Find Yvonne and let her simple monument represent the century since the woman who died at the age of 97 was buried in the Mt Olivet...More

Fascinating that such a small place can have such a big cemetery. Well worth going to see. Many the nationality represented and reflects the town's mining heritage.
