Toll Gate Creek Archaeological Site2141 South Kittredge Way
Aurora, CO 80013
In 1982, two local boys found a Native American grave that dated back to 670 A.D. The grave, containing the remains of an adult male and young child, was fully excavated by an archaeological team, and all associated material was later reinterred at an undisclosed sacred location. The gravesite was located along the banks of the West Toll Gate Creek, a water source used by ancient peoples, as well as a migration path.
