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.
