COLORADANS WITH IRISH CONNECTIONS
Join our Irish Network for an historic and unique tour of Riverside Cemetery, the oldest in Denver, led by distinguished civic leader, academic, historian, author and raconteur Dennis Gallagher.
Dennis is an expert on the cemetery and the notable people buried there as he has been giving entertaining tours of the place over the past 50 years. Be prepared for stories of midnight burials of divorcees, Irish immigrants like Colonel Archer who brought gas lights and piped water to Denver, Silas Soule who refused to obey Chivington's order to fire on the defenseless Indians at Sand Creek, and many more tales that Dennis will deliver in his own unique and delightful way.
We will meet at the office just inside the gates at 1.30pm and afterwards retire to The Source on Brighton Blvd for libations. The tour should last 90 minutes.
