Welcome to the Eagle Cemetery District Website
Sunset View Cemetery established in 1885 is managed by the Eagle Cemetery District which is a special district created by state statute in 1945. It is located within Eagle County and funded by a minimal mill levy of property taxes. The boundaries of the district are roughly between Wolcott and the Eagle County Airport from east to west and Castle Peak to Fulford from north to south. The Cemetery is governed by a three-member, volunteer board appointed by the Eagle County Commissioners and follows the rules mandated by the State of Colorado. A caretaker and an administrator oversee the operation of the Cemetery.
The cemetery is a vital part of our community providing both immediate needs for members of the District as well as serving as an important part of the history of our area.
In the Fall of 2017 three columbarium structures were erected which provide space for up to 416 cremation urns.
The revenue provided from property taxes of those within the District supports the maintenance and future development of the cemetery.
