Overview

The date the Frisco Cemetery was established is uncertain; what is known is that it is more than one hundred years old. Portions of the cemetery have been left in their natural vegetative state, while other sections are manicured and maintained by the Town.  The cemetery has twenty-seven blocks; three of which are reserved for the Deming, Lund, and Thomas/Mogee families in the naturalized area. One block in the maintained area was purchased by the Rocky Mountain Bible Church to meet special needs of the community and their members. It is surmised that most of the earliest and unmarked graves are for miners or prostitutes.

In 1951 an uproar erupted in the town when newcomer Emil Slovak claimed that a half acre of the cemetery was on his ranch. He erected a barbed-wire fence on what he determined was his property line and threatened to dig up the graves on his side of the fence. After a court battle with Frisco officials, Slovak lost his case. He eventually sold his ranch.

The cemetery doesn’t house only the dead. The mowed area is home to dozens of prairie dogs, and the wild area, especially the east side, counts at least one resident badger. While the birds and squirrels that nest in the trees are welcome, the ground inhabitants are not.
