Tunnel Station Cemetery

The way to the final resting place of many fine Valles Mines citizens (photo by Jane Turner)

Pictured: The way to the final resting place of many fine Valles Mines citizens was through the old railroad tunnel to Tunnel Station Cemetery. It is located, as you leave the tunnel, 600 feet farther on your right, west of the railroad right of way ( Click here to see the map).

Although preliminary excavation to restore roads this area has begun, please take care as some rough ground remains and 4WD is still required. Plans are under way to reopen our cemeteries for new burials [See also the Bisch-Townsend Cemetery].
