My name is Matthew and I help take care of Ralston Cemetery. I became interested in the Ralston Cemetery by working at the Arvada Historical Society. I had done a couple of research projects and have stumbled on information about the Cemetery. I had never been to the Ralston Cemetery before and when I had found the address, I found out it was only a couple of blocks away from my house. The day after I found the address, I went there with my family and we did some catalouging of the graves and the area by taking photographs and writing down the inscriptions. Since the past year, I have been working on cleaning up the cemetery and weeding it from the cracks of the headstones. Currently, although the City of Arvada states that there is no new vandalism in the cemetery, there is. However, the city has kept it from being completely destroyed, and I thank them for that, but it isn't the highest priority on their list. I have been in contact with the City of Arvada Parks Department and through you who visit, we may save and protect this historic cemetery. Please help me to locate the unknown graves of the cemetery and keep me posted on any vandalism that you may see. Please contact me at (303) 472-9551.
