acre property every year absorbs 21,000 tons of carbon dioxide and puts out 14,000 tons of oxygen, enough

CEMETERIES OF THE VILLAGES
Tunnel Station Cemetery
Pictured: The way to the final resting place of many fine Valles Mines citizens was
through the old railroad tunnel to Tunnel Station Cemetery. It is located, as you leave the tunnel, 600 feet
farther on your right, west of the railroad right of way (

Although preliminary excavation to restore roads this area has begun, please take care as some
rough ground remains and 4WD is still required. Plans are under way to reopen our cemeteries for new
burials [See also the Bisch-Townsend Cemetery].
