This is an old grave yard located in a small town that offers a visitor an opportunity to see where one of America’s great frontiersman is buried beside his third wife. Be sure to take a few minutes to visit if you enjoy history.

By watching the video before touring, the visitor gets a better appreciation of the Kit Carson, his house, and his family. Interesting period.

If you like to visit the grave sites of famous people, this is a must see, since everyone's heard of Kit Carson. BTW, Dennis Hopper is buried in Taos, across town.

No. They will sell beverages there and won't allow you to bring your own to guarantee that you will pay crazy prices for water even. The lawn chair will be handy unless they over pack the event.
