Riverside Cemetery is owned and maintained by the City of Kalamazoo.


Riverside Cemetery was established in 1862 as a city owned cemetery. At the time, 26 acres of land was purchased from Jeremiah P. Woodbury. Riverside Cemetery was primarily used by the city's common folk, whereas wealthy families tended to use the city's other municipally owned cemetery, Mountain Home.

Expansions and land acquisitions took place in 1882, 1934, 1939, 1950, 1953, 1960, 1962, and 1984. Today the cemetery sits on 90 acres. As of 2014, it's estimated some 84,000 burials have taken place here.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
