Gateway Graves
Thank you to Jacob Dougherty for giving us an update to the exact location of the Gateway Cemtery. Google Maps coordinates; 38.68045, -108.96907

Written by Jean Moores, 1998: "Records indicate there are five to seven graves in a graveyard on top of the hill across West Creek from the Gateway School. This cemetery was only used a few times in the early 1900's. It is located on private property now owned by Jack and Rosemary Casto. The first person known to be buried was in 1900, the last in 1940. The Museum of Western Colorado kindly shared this information."
