Haunting in fall

Tour Denver's grande dame of graveyards for history and mystery

You won't be alone this month if you visit Fairmount, Denver's burial ground for pioneer aristocracy: Fall is cemetery-touring season.

More than 100 curious visitors arrive on Saturday, October 29, for the annual Tombstone Tour of Fairmount Cemetery, a three-hour walking tour led by costumed guides. To prowl Fairmount alone (you brave soul), pick up a self-guided tour pamphlet. ―Carolyn Sutton
