The Riverside Cemetery covers 87 acres overlooking the French Broad River. In 1885 the Riverside Cemetery was names the Asheville Cemetery but later was named the Riverside Cemetery. It is an active cemetery with more than 13,000 people buried here, 9000 monuments and 12 family mausoleums. Through the large iron gates, you may take a self-guided walking tour through ancient oak, poplar, dogwood and ginkgo trees.
