I am trying to find Linwood Cemetery. I want to have a handle on where it is before I take a trip to Glenwood Springs. I know it is not an active cemetery. Thanks for your help.

I did a Goggle search and found the following:

From the Frontier Historical Museum, it’s a steady climb up the hill to another reminder of Glenwood’s historic past. The Linwood Cemetery, a half-mile walk up the edge of Jasper Mountain, supposedly contains (a matter of much debate) the remains of Doc Holliday, the legendary gunslinger who came to Glenwood in 1887 for his health, but died six months later of consumption. The West is full of such characters, but it is to Glenwood’s credit that the information placard at the cemetery’s entrance talks about Glenwood’s lesser known residents who are buried in the cemetery: the African-Americans who "helped build and nurture early Glenwood Springs."

It seems a long slog up the hill, in dirt that tends to get deep and sticky when wet, and one is apt to gain a new appreciation of the old residents of Glenwood who would have accompanied their deceased, probably on a cart driven by horses, far above the town. But up here, among the junipers and rabbitbrush, surrounded by the tall mountains, there’s a serenity not found in modern-day Glenwood below, with its roar of traffic and busy commerce. Probably not in the old Glenwood either, with men and women eager to make a buck, find their fortune and create a new city based on their vision.


I'm sure if you do a little looking around on-line, you can find more information. There's probably a Historic Society in Glenwood that would be able to help you.

Find A Grave: Pioneer Cemetery

Linwood also goes by that name apparently. Kid Curry is buried there too.

It's not difficult to find, neuro, access is up a moderately steep walking trail. We took pics at DH's "grave" though his actual resting place is apparently in question. Being fans of Tombstone it was worth the effort for us.

I just saw another listing on Find-a-Grave that has Kid Curry buried in Rosebud cemetery in Glenwood rather than Linwood.
