The Telluride Historical Museum is excited to partner with the Lone Tree Cemetery for an evening of storytelling honoring former Telluride residents interred within the historic landmark.
Guests, visitors, and cemetery supporters will interact with historical characters and learn the fascinating tales of the earliest residents who lived, worked, and died here as well as celebrate and honor recent community members we have lost including: Elaine Fischer, John Micetic, John McCarron and others.
All proceeds benefit the Lone Tree Cemetery Preservation Fund and donations are greatly appreciated. The cemetery board requests all guests to donate $20 for entry, and will graciously accept gifts from those who cannot attend.
