Colorado’s oldest cemetery feels threatened by new RTD rail line
DENVER -- A cemetery older than the state of Colorado is worried a new RTD rail line could disrupt its operations. More than 66,000 people rest in peace at Riverside Cemetery at 5201 Brighton Blvd. in Denver. "It's the oldest active cemetery in Denver," said Michael Long, with Riverside Cemetery. “It was founded in 1876, two months before Colorado became a state.”
