Portland OR 97219

Lat: 45° 27' 30"N, Lon: 122° 39' 57"W

From I-5, take the Terwilliger Blvd exit and follow the signs for Lewis and Clark College to get onto Terwilliger southbound. Turn left (down the hill) on Taylors Ferry Road. There are two large cemeteries on Taylors Ferry: the first is Beth Israel and the second is Riverview. Both entrances are well marked and on your right.

Riverview is one of Portland's oldest and largest privately owned cemeteries founded in 1882 by the leading families of the day. The early burials are a veritable history of Portland's founders and early leaders. The cemetery is still in operation and maintenance is on-going.
