    Clear Creek CountyAlvarado Cemetery52The cemetery now referred
    to as
    "Alvarado" is a
    combination of 6 or 7
    early cemeteries created
    by different groups
    between the late
    1860's and the turn
    of the century. From the
    early 1900's through
    the present day, members
    of the Masonic Lodge #12,
    AF& AM, have been the
    caring stewards - a
    daunting task undertaken
    by generations of lodge
    members on behalf of
    their own and other
    organizations. The
    current sexton is Ned
    Biggs of Idaho Springs.

    The oldest section sits
    back against the mountain
    in the old Masonic
    section. Tyler
    Disbrow's grave
    (1869) has been
    referenced as the oldest
    although there is an
    earlier child's
    grave from 1865. The
    Masons and the Oddfellows
    were the first to use the
    land for cemetery
    purposes. here were
    early Masonic lodges in
    both Empire and
    Georgetown, so it is
    quite possible that the
    lodges acted jointly to
    form a cemetery for all -
    certainly for the western
    end of the county.

    Early residents from
    Empire, Georgetown,
    Silver Plume, Lawson and
    Dumont are buried here.
    Georgetown had a early
    cemetery inside the town
    limits, but the rocky
    soil and windswept nature
    of the area were always
    problems. As the

    Alvarado cemetery became
    better know, it became
    the burial preference for
    Georgetown residents.
    The Silver Plume cemetery
    started with the
    Oddfellows cemetery in
    1881, while the Empire
    cemetery was organized by
    the Town of Empire in the
    1890's. It is no
    surprise that many of the
    pioneers from these
    towns, many of whom died
    prior to the
    establishment of local
    cemeteries, are buried

    The cemetery is located
    off Highway I-70 about 40
    miles west of Denver on
    the frontage road. Take
    the Georgetown exit and
    at the stop sign go left
    and follow the frontage
    road back along the
    highway about 4 miles
    until you see the wrought
    iron gate to the cemetery
    on the right side.

    The base map to the right
    was used with the
    original application to
    register the cemetery. It
    was prepared and
    presented for acceptance
    by the Georgetown Masonic
    Lodge 12 (AF & AM).

    The "Section"
    notation designate the
    section of the cemetery.
    The areas of the cemetery
    here referred to as
    "A" now include
    the whole area to the
    northeast of the St.
    Mary's and Glendale
    Sections. "A"
    is for Alvarado, the
    largest section running
    from the main gate back
    towards the Handicamp;
    "G" Glendale
    section, the heavily
    wooded area which runs
    from the main gate over
    to the large house.
    "S" is St.
    Mary's, the catholic
    section, which is carved

    established in 1863.
    Volunteers of Foothills
    Genealogical Society of
    Colorado copied the
    tombstone inscriptions of
    Arvada Cemetery in 1983.
    Information was copied
    from tombstones, mortuary
    markers, other metal
    markers and foot stones.
    The recording of
    tombstones inscriptions
    was done row by row, and
    published that way, to
    keep family burials more
    intact than if listed
