The Foxton Cemetery, also known as Foxton Junction Cemetery and Beaver Ranch Cemetery, was established as a community cemetery in the mid to late 1870s. It is located south of the town of Conifer. The first burial, according to gravestone inscripitions, appears to have been in 1879, with the last burial being 1891. The cemetery is abandoned.--Dennis Bailey
