Riverside Cemetery Overview Estimated Tour time: 30 min (driving) 1 hr+ (walking) Audio: 30 minutes Tour Route Length: 1.5 miles # of tracks: 26 tracks (25 stops) Inside the gates are stone-carved figures that seem to droop in sorrow, gaze out upon the landscape or reach to the heavens in a show of grief unfamiliar in our modern times, reminders of how precious life really is, and how peaceful it can be even in the midst of a thriving neighborhood. Stone or marble mausoleums, monuments to entire families, dot Riversideâ€™s landscape, incorporating colorful stained glass windows and ornate doorways within their solemn architecture. Here the famous and the humble rest together: financier and pauper, Christian and Jew, black and white, soldier and civilian, the powerful and the meek. Learn the stories behind some of the 13,000 people who rest here. Ashevilleâ€™s character was built on the shoulders of these residents of Riverside and your tour will reveal some of their stories.
