    Historic Mount Olivet Cemetery Tour with Dennis Gallagher

    This event has been postponed until a date in the Fall!


    Join our Irish Network for an historic and unique tour of Mount Olivet Cemetery where 150,000 Denverites are buried. The tour will be led by the distinguished civic leader, academic, historian, author and raconteur Dennis Gallagher. This will be our fifth historical tour after wonderful tours of Irish Neighborhoods in the Highlands, Eastern European neighborhoods in Globeville and tours of Riverside and Fairmount Cemeteries.

    Mount Olivet first opened in 1892 and is the resting place for many famous figures in Colorado History like Horace and Baby Doe Tabor as well as William Gilpin, the first Governor of Colorado.

    The tour will start at 2pm and should last 90 minutes to two hours.

    Afterwards we will retire to Clancy's Irish Pub in Wheat Ridge for libations. 

    Our last cemetery tour was a sellout so we would advise you to purchase your tickets early.
