Riverview Cemetery is Jefferson City’s newest Landmark
Resting place of history
Sunday, May 27, 2012
Many public servants are memorialized at Riverview Cemetery in Jefferson City.
Some survived the Civil War, others immigrated here after that dividing point in Missouri history and others were pioneers long before the 1860s. But the recently named city Landmark on 8,000 acres also holds dear loved ones, those whose influences aren’t reflected in titles or grand overtures.
For most of the 10,000 who have been interred at the West Main Street cemetery in the last century, this is the last record of their lives, noted Mark Schreiber, local historian and cemetery board member.
