The Dillon Cemetery located in Dillon, Colorado was established in 1885 and moved to its current location in 1962. The Cemetery Advisory Committee (“Committee”) was established in 2003 to advise the Dillon Town Council regarding ongoing and newly identified needs of the Dillon Cemetery so as to perpetuate the dignity and history of the site and those individuals interred there.
