About Crested Butte Cemetery
The Crested Butte cemetery presents graves that date back as far as the early 19th Century. It remains active today. The cemetery is located at the foot of Crested Butte mountain, which you can see in the background of the photo on the main page. It is also located near the heart of downtown Crested Butte, a popular tourist destination. The Crested Butte cemetery roads are plowed even during the winter, making most of the cemetery accessible even in the deepest snow, as you can see from the photo below. Some sixty miners were buried in a mass grave here in 1884, after what was then the worst mining disaster in Colorado history at the Jokerville Mine.
Crystal City can be reached from Crested Butte by crossing Schofield Pass. Ashcroft can be reached from Crested Butte by crossing Pearl Pass. Both of these passes are closed in the winter.
