More than he bargained for

Real Estate – December 1999 – Colorado Central Magazine

Old property descriptions aren’t always accurate, as one Rob Brownlee discovered.

He bought some land that was supposed to be next to the Como Cemetery in South Park. A survey revealed that he’d actually bought into 5.5 acres of the 112-year-old cemetery, including occupied graves.

Park County is responsible for the cemetery. Brownlee offered the county an easement, which will likely be a temporary solution until the county can arrange a trade.

Brownlee would get some unoccupied cemetery land, also adjoining his property, in exchange for the 5.55 acres with graves.
