Riverside Cemetery


Riverside Cemetery is located at 3840 Sunbury Road. The oldest part of Riverside Cemetery, closest to the front entrance off of Sunbury Road, has graves for residents dating as far back to the Revolutionary War.  

Riverside Cemetery, located on the east side of Sunbury Road, less than a mile north of the Innis-McCutcheon Road intersection, has been described as picturesque, with the headstones near the entrance marking the location of one of the earliest settlements in the area.

The entrance plaque marks the cemetery as the original burial ground for the Patterson and Drake families. Near the center front section of the cemetery, a gazebo is inscribed with a military marker, dedicating the structure to Mifflin Township residents who served in the Civil War, and honoring the unknown dead of that war.

Interment books for burials in the historic sections of both Mifflin and Riverside Cemeteries were lost in a fire many years ago. Using available existing records, we have been able to rebuild a database for nearly all existing burials in the cemetery.
