From State Hgw 9 on Hgw 285 go .09 miles toward Denver, turn right and go .06 miles.  The cemetery is 260 ft east of 285. Henry Eugene Guiraud possibly set aside the area in 1863.  The cemetery contains as much as 20 acres.  In 1881 5 acres may have been purchased from the Odd Fellows  for $85.00.  There are over 380 headstones and there may be half that many more burials without headstones. A number of Chinese were buried in the cemetery.
