Was very interesting to see. Many of the graves told how the person came to pass. Was an excellent experience, wish we could have spent more time there.

Just an old cemetery. It is broken down by sections for different churches, or organizations. Looks like some of the sites were re-done in the recent past, and others with new wooden markers. Lots on the early 1900's

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.
