CANCELED: Sunnyside Cemetery Tours presented by Victor Lowell Thomas Museum at Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, Victor CO

Remembering Victor’s pioneers buried in the 1890’s mountain cemetery with a focus of the tour on the Woodmen of the World.

Step back in time and learn about Victor’s 1890’s cemetery, its resident politicians, and the history that brought them to the gold mining camp. This event is sponsored by the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum and will be held Saturday, June 13 as well as the second and fourth Saturdays June through September.

Local historian Veldean Myers will provide insights into the cemetery, its history and some of the residents who made up the human element of the gold rush. The event will be held at the Sunnyside Cemetery which is south of town on Seventh Street. Meet just outside the gate in Pauper’s Field by 10 a.m. This year’s focus is on the Woodmen of the World, a fraternal organization started in 1890 in Nebraska. Members have their graves marked with concrete replicas of tree trunks. Several members of the Victor lodge of the Woodmen are buried at Sunnyside.

Pre-paid credit card reservations are encouraged and can be made at VictorMuseum.com. Tickets at the event are by cash only. All tickets are $10 per person. Proceeds benefit the museum’s building and restoration fund.

Be sure to dress appropriately for mountain weather (which can include wind, cold temperatures, snow, and rain), wear good hiking shoes or boots, and bring water and sunscreen. There are no restroom facilities at the cemetery.
