Evergreen and Fairview Cemeteries

Evergreen and Fairview cemeteries open for Memorial Day Weekend; Guests at Evergreen advised to proceed with caution due to ongoing storm cleanup

Evergreen Cemetery will be open to visitors over the holiday weekend (Saturday - Monday), despite ongoing storm cleanup efforts. Fairview Cemetery will also be open this weekend. Evergreen’s hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Fairview’s are 6 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Visitors are advised that dangerous conditions exist at Evergreen Cemetery, including downed branches and storm debris. The City is working as quickly as resources allow to remove debris, including on gravesites. However, due to the extensive storm damage impacting roads citywide, the City does not expect storm recovery to be completed by the weekend.

“We recognize the importance of this weekend for many of our families, both military and civilian, and we have prioritized the cleanup of our city cemetery and made the decision to keep it open in order to honor the families of the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Mayor John Suthers. “We hope to accomplish as much reparation as possible in the coming days and ask for our residents’ patience and understanding as we continue the storm mitigation.”

Evergreen visitors are advised to adhere to signage on the property and proceed at their own risk due to potential hazards.  Also, visitors should not attempt clean-up on their own as, in many instances, debris is significant in size and unstable.

During continued clean-up efforts, Evergreen Cemetery hours may vary over the coming weeks. Please contact the Evergreen office at 719-385-6251 for the latest information. 

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.

Attention Evergreen and Fairview Families
The cemetery is planting grass on new graves and mowing and trimming the spaces.  Please note that we cannot plant grass, mow, or trim any spaces that have grave decorations that are not in approved cemetery vases or on the monument base.  All plastic flowers, fencing, solar lights, figurines, pinwheels, baskets, toys, glass or plastic vases, wind chimes, hooks, and any other items must be removed for grass to be planted, mowed and trimmed.  We ask that families do not place any prohibited items on grave spaces at any time.  All items will be removed by cemetery staff during the cemetery clean up in September.  Thank you for helping us keep our cemeteries safe and beautiful places to visit. 

Evergreen Cemetery

Evergreen 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.

Fairview Cemetery

Fairview Cemetery is sold out of spaces for casket burial.  Limited cremation spaces are still available. 

Fairview Cemetery provides a colorful look at the history of the area. Tucked inside a Westside Colorado Springs neighborhood, the 32-acre cemetery exudes charm and history. It boasts the grave sites of many fascinating figures who were instrumental in establishing the history of Colorado City, founded in 1859 as a supply town for gold prospectors.
