Description

A Historic Orthodox Jewish Cemetery in Lakewood, CO
Gain a sense of history and visit Golden Hill Cemetery. This Orthodox Jewish Cemetery in Lakewood, CO, was established at the turn of the 20th century as a resting place for patients that succumbed to the tuberculosis epidemic. Today, visitors tour the cemetery to piece together a portion of American history.

The cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its historical and cultural significance. The Orthodox Jewish community settled near the Lakewood area during the Gold Rush, and Jewish settlers ran the hospitals that were set up to treat tuberculosis.

This historic cemetery is the final resting place for hundreds of people. Although there are only a couple of hundred tombstones dotting the plots throughout the grounds, Colorado historians estimate that as many as 800 people are buried here.
