Picture of Aunt Libby's dog cemetery.

From 1866 to 1900, Aunt Libby Rockwell and her husband, Horace, ran an overland Stage Station near the summit of Lookout Pass. Since Aunt Libby had no children, she filled the void with pet dogs and cats. As her cherished pets died over the years, she located this site as their final resting place alongside three human graves, which consist of two adults and one child. Horace Rockwell was a brother to the famous Porter Rockwell.

Location: Approximately eight miles west of the intersection of State Route 36 and Lookout Pass Road. In same vicinity as Lookout Pass Pony Express Station Monument.
