Evergreen and Fairview Cemeteries are Colorado Springs' oldest continuously-operated cemeteries. We invite you to visit, tour our facilities and learn about the services we provide. You are welcome to drive, bicycle, or take a leisurely stroll through either cemetery and enjoy the serenity that both have to offer.

Evergreen Cemetery

Evergreen Cemetery was established shortly after the town was founded in 1871, and deeded to the City of Colorado Springs in 1875 by city founder, General William Jackson Palmer. As such, 220-acre Evergreen Cemetery enjoys a unique historical tie to the Colorado Springs community. In 1993, Evergreen was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, only the second cemetery in the state to receive such an honor.

As custodians of the cemeteries, the City of Colorado Springs embraces its responsibility to preserve the rich history contained at Evergreen and Fairview.

Most cemetery blocks are endowed, meaning the purchasers paid for perpetual care of these grave sites. Created in the early 1900's, the perpetual care fund encompasses the mowing, watering, and fertilizing of grave sites. Monument maintenance is the responsibility of the purchasers and their heirs.

The Cemetery Enterprise pre-sells grave spaces, niches, opening and closing fees, and select burial vaults for those desiring to lock in burial costs before need.

We also sell grave spaces and niches over time with a contract that requires $100 down payment per space, or niche, a 10% administration fee and quarterly payments ending in one year. No burials or interments may occur until a space or niche is paid in full. All pre-need services require space or niche ownership. All Cemetery fees must be paid before burials. The Cemetery Enterprise does not accept insurance consignments, promissory notes or other agreement instruments.
