Meet the Spirits of Boulder’s Spooky Past at the Columbia Cemetery

Get The Scoop on Boulder’s Past at Historic Boulder’s Meet The Spirits Event
Sunday, October 16 – Noon until 5 pm – Columbia Cemetery
Join Historic Boulder to learn about Boulder’s history. Buried beneath the rocky soil of Boulder’s Columbia Cemetery are a multitude of stories from the lives of the residents interred there. From the famous to the infamous and the founders to the scoundrels; each has a unique and personal tale to tell. On October 16, 2016, a select group of “spirits” will share the stories of their lives with those who come to listen. Learn about the early days of Boulder, and the struggles faced as the pioneers established a foothold at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Uncover the secrets that were taken to the grave, and share the triumphs and tragedies of those who came before.  This biennial event brings the cemetery to life for just one afternoon.
Renew the acquaintance of more familiar residents like Dorothy Gay Howard, the unfortunate murder victim who was simply known for so long as Jane Doe, and ill-fated cowboy gunslinger, Tom Horn and hear unfamiliar stories as well. Listen to little 10-year old Rosa Peterman as she recounts her untimely death in the rushing waters of Boulder Creek, and enjoy a reenactment by The Buffalo Soldier Story as they honor fallen comrade Edward Baker whose gravesite was recently discovered. Observe reenactments of Masonic funerals, and find out about the practice of green burials, while children can take part in a scavenger hunt among the stones. For one day, the typically somber silence of the cemetery will be broken as the departed return from the grave.
