Hidden Cemetery in Bernalillo, NM

An old cemetery in Bernalillo, NM that was discovered a couple of months ago is being restored. The following information is from the KRQE Channel 13 website:

BERNALILLO, N.M. (KRQE) - The town of Bernalillo uncovered 200 years of history. Neighbors discovered an old cemetery south of U.S. Highway 550 near the railroad just two months ago.

Weeds and shrubs grew over the tombstones. Some of the graves date back to the 1800s. Few people even knew the cemetery existed.

"A lot of people walk by this cemetery on [a] particular path and don't even realize it's there," said Roxanne Smyth.
