We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about Golden Hill Cemetery. More than just a resting place, the cemetery serves as an invaluable historical landmark. This Orthodox Jewish cemetery was founded over 100 years ago during a tumultuous time in history when a tuberculosis epidemic caused many deaths within the Jewish community. Later on, the cemetery became the final resting place for World War I veterans and those fleeing from Hitler and the Nazis during World War II. For these reasons, we cannot overstate the importance of our Orthodox Jewish cemetery site in Lakewood, CO.
In fact, the federal government has recognized the significance of our cemetery by designating it as a historic burial site. Historians estimate that approximately 800 people are buried here, but many of the headstones no longer exist. Even so, our cemetery has become a destination for tourists who have an interest in early 20th century America. A visit here gives you a lesson about an important era in U.S. history.
We are committed to preserving this historical site, and preservation takes money, so we welcome donations for cemetery maintenance. All cemetery donations are used to keep the grounds trimmed neatly and to ensure the entire site always looks presentable for visitors. Any amount you donate is tax-deductible. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
