Riverside Cemetery Conservancy

Preserving the Past for the Future

Natural beauty beckons as Riverside Cemetery opens wide its gates to families and individuals who wish to enjoy its serene, beautifully-landscaped grounds, footpaths, roads, and vistas.

The Conservancy not only works to preserve this serene green space located on a bluff above the Ocmulgee River, it also preserves a cultural landmark, filled with sculptures and monuments. By highlighting the history of the community builders, musicians, teachers, athletes, ministers, public servants, homemakers, aviators, and others who reside here, we offer to our visitors a deep connection to the past and to our community.

Year-round events and programs entertain and educate the public and preserve the cemetery’s historic relevance to modern culture. In addition, the 501(c)(3) non-profit Conservancy raises funds to secure the long-term stability of the cemetery. All donations are tax deductible
