Welcome to Riverside Cemetery...A Living Place of Lasting Peace

Riverside Cemetery MausoleumRiverside Cemetery in Appleton, Wisconsin is a natural non-profit, non-sectarian resting place owned by the people we serve. Founded in 1870, we've served the Fox Cities community for well over a century, dedicated to continuing our rich tradition of providing a dignified atmosphere and the meticulously maintained beauty of our nearly 90 acres of park-like setting.

Private, serene and splendid, Riverside Cemetery is an eloquent testament to the foresight of our founders by providing a resting place for area families that is rich in local history and honor.

"Life is eternal; and love is immortal; and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing more save the limit of our sight."- Rossiter Worthington Raymond
