Button Cemetery

Originally a public cemetery, now is private and abandoned. The only known burial date is 1902. There are 16 graves. 

It is thought that this cemetery was used by the people that worked on the Gunnison Tunnel, but this cannot be proved. 

Directions: Located about 5 miles S of Montrose on US 550 to Trout Road, east 1.6 miles, on the east side of the road.
