Community Presentation: Pagosa Springs Cemetery Project
December 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dr. Ruth Lambert will share information learned from the recent cemetery research project conducted at the original Pagosa Springs cemetery, also known as Pioneer Cemetery and the Old Fort Lewis Cemetery. During the summer of 2021, the Town of Pagosa Springs partnered with volunteers from the Archuleta County Genealogical Society and Lambert to conduct an archaeological assessment of the cemetery. Using a variety of noninvasive instruments, scans of the cemetery were taken to accurately survey the ground. At the same time, volunteers conducted extensive research to uncover scarce records and learn more about Pagosa’s past and give us a better understanding of the historical significance of this old cemetery. Everyone is invited to attend this historical event.
