There are several different cemeteries here. One is Catholic, and there is one general one, and there are two different ones toward the back. The public one was the most interesting. The way the graves are laid out and the crosses that have been added for those that have not made it through the years. The local historical society is... More

This is just an old cemetery with just head stone. There is nothing to see. It's not a tourist site.

The Goldfield Cemetery is a very old historic cemetery. It is very interesting to read the head stones and how young a lot of the people were.

We found a grave that simply said, "Here Lies Shorty" and there was a full bottle of wine and two glasses on the grave. We tried to find... More

I'm talking about the cemetery! This is a classic western town. Stop have a look around and chat to the store owners. The cemetery is right out if a western movie. I loved the whole place.

I really enjoyed walking around looking at all the old headstones. There are some really old ones here. We also went at night because the other person I was with thinks he can speak to ghosts. Clearly hes delusional. Haha.

Fascinating history lesson from reading the epitaphs. It was very windy and dusty just before it started to snow.
