Calhan Memorial Cemetery
The Calhan Memorial Cemetery was originally opened in 1912 with 233 lots. Unfortunately, many lots were filled by our brave U.S. Service Members fallen during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. In 1918, George Haver sold a small piece of the adjacent ranchland to add 191 additional lots known as the Haver Extension.
The Town owns and manages the Calhan Cemetery. Visit Town Hall to purchase a cemetery plot and for burial arrangements. The Calhan Public Works Department is responsible for ground-keeping and maintenance of the cemetery. The Calhan Cemetery Committee meets as needed to ensure our cemetery is receiving the attention and care necessary. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please contact the Town Hall.
The local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) chapter sells and maintains the commemorative flag poles that border the cemetery. Their volunteers raise and lower U.S. flags on every cemetery flag pole on special occasions such as Veterans Day and Memorial Day. They can also raise U.S. flags for burial services of fallen U.S. Service Members. The sight of Old Glory plying on many flag poles reminds one of the sacrifices made to ensure our freedoms.
