Fitch Cemetery

Established in the 1920s, the Fitch family cemetery is unique and significant for its role as a private cemetery for a mining entrepreneurial family and is located near the family’s historic mine, mining headquarters, and residence.

Approximately one-half acre in size, it is designed in the form of a circle and features a wrought iron fence, a stone pathway, and a surrounding rock wall. As members of the Catholic faith, the Fitch family also had an altar for saying Mass and places to kneel built at the cemetery. Several members of the Fitch family are buried at the cemetery, and it continues to function today as the family cemetery.

This cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (#79003471)
