Welcome to the Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery website.
Riverside is Denver’s oldest and most historic cemetery; sadly, it is also the most neglected. As an organization, our goal is to increase the awareness of Riverside as a historical and cultural treasure in order to begin the process of restoring and revitalizing the cemetery. It has been largely ignored for many years, and it’s going to take a lot of time, energy, and money to get it moving in the right direction.
We are in the process of setting up a new non-profit, Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery. How our organization will evolve in the future is still to be determined, but we’re convinced that in some way we will help to improve Riverside.
We are having an organizational meeting on Saturday, November 17th, at 11am, and we encourage all interested members of the community to attend.
We are looking for people who want to get involved in a variety of ways, from board members to volunteers to historians. If you or anyone you know might be interested, definitely attend our meeting.
