Which famous cemetery was opened in 1882 on top of a hill over looking the Asarco Plant?

It’s your chance to “Win, Place and Go!”

Weekdays (Monday – Friday) at the top of the 4pm hour, join Scott Ronson, KLAQ, and Sunland Park Racetrack for a round of “Win, Place, and Go.”

I will ask a trivia question about El Paso or a landmark, the first caller with the correct answer (win) will win $25.00 in lucky bucks and two Ventannas Buffet Q-pons.

The caller who comes in just behind the winner (place) will win lunch for 2 at Ventannas Buffet.

Today’s question and answer:

Q: Which famous cemetery was opened in 1882 on top of a hill over looking the Asarco Plant?

A: The Smeltertown Cemetery

The road to the cemetery starts near the intersection of Executive and Paisano, where a little street called San Marcos peters out into gravel and climbs up the hill of brown dirt tinged with gray undertones.  It arrives at a pair of pipe gates. This historic cemetery became the final resting place for many people from the Smeltertown community, some of folks who worked the mines and plant that would define much of El Paso’s early identity.

Congratulation to today’s Win: Carlos Chavez

Congratulations to today’s Place: Erika Sosa
