In response to two recent citations from City of Wilmington License & Inspection for tall grass & weeds outside the cemetery fence, we will devote our monthly volunteer time and labor to beautifying
Eastlawn Avenue.
We will pick up trash, cut grass (using weedwackers), and remove vines from the fence. Volunteers may also weed the large perennial garden nearby in the Baby Section of the
cemetery. Please join us!

Directions: Enter at Chapel/Office Construction Site, drive to end of road, turn left and park near Section 18S; a short walk to Eastlawn Avenue.

Historic Riverview Cemetery
Riverview Cemetery, a Victorian garden cemetery, traces its 1872 origin to the benevolent societies of the Knights of Pythias and Independent Order of Odd Fellows. It consists of 42 acres spanning both sides of Market Street in Wilmington, DE. Surrounded by homes, churches, and small businesses, Riverview Cemetery is a beautiful "green space" in the city. This historic, affordable, and active burial ground remains available for people of all social, ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds.
