Historic Riverside Cemetery Conservancy dedicates its efforts to preserve, to enhance and to share the beauty and history of the cemetery for the benefit of future generations. We invite visitors to enjoy our serene greenspace-to walk, cycle, picnic, meditate. We offer public programs-guided tours on which costumed actors stand at grave side to bring to life stories of people buried here. We offer jazz performances, outdoor movie screenings, and photography classes. We have developed a curriculum so students can learn about the real lives of real people by seeing their monuments and archives. There are 18,000 stories here-each one evocative of the era in which that person lived.
