Boot Hill Cemetery in Canyon CityThere are four graves, that of two women and two men. We do not have records of their time of passing, their names, or their individual location within this enclosure, but assume it to be during the gold rush days of 1862-1880. We also do not know why they are buried where the be, only that they were not permitted into the main cemetery for the following reasons. It is said that the two men met their fate on the gallows for stealing horses. The two women were ladies of the night living on Canyon Creek and perished one night in a spring flash flood.
