    Old Colorado City Cemetery Crawl

    One hour conducted tour past graves with a costumed figure representing who is buried there - from Laura Belle's - the Queen of the Colorado City Red Light District, to Anthony Bott's large tombstone - one of the pioneer founders of Colorado City - who also rode in the 3rd Colorado Cavalry against the Indians at Sand Creek in 1864 - and was proud of it! Duncan Lamont, the fiery Scottish preacher who railed against the 21 Saloons of Colorado City, Dr. Issaac Winternetz - who was shot by Adolph Busch (yes, the beer baron) for what he wrote on the death certificate of his daughter but survived to spawn a large doctor family in Colorado Springs. Characters and personalities you WON'T find in snooty Evergreen Cemetery across town. Anytime between 10 a.m.to the start of the last tour at 2 p.m
