Nearly 70 Jewish immigrants were settled in and near Cotopaxi. Facing
insurmountable challenges, the ill-equipped Colonists made heroic efforts
to farm the rocky land. A synagogue was established, three weddings were
recorded, and three Colony children were the cemetery's first burials. Local oral history
suggests an adult colonist was possibly buried here. The colonists disbanded
in 1884, with many becoming prominent citizens of Denver and The West.
