Many small children, infants, and young mothers were interred in this cemetery during Aspen’s mining era.

Here, in honored rest, lie veterans of the Civil War who came to early Aspen. Buried here is Peter F. Galligan, an Aspen World War I “doughboy” who was killed in France, November of 1918. Also buried here, are Aspen veterans of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam.

Aspen Grove is the final resting place for many of Aspen’s most prominent citizens, including those longtime Aspenites of the “Quiet Years,” who are the descendants of the early pioneers of Aspen.

The entrance gate of this cemetery was erected in the year A.D. 2000 and is dedicated to the memorial of all, known and unknown, who are buried within.”
