Historical notes on Riverside Cemetery:

May Buy Riverside Cemetery (The Sault Ste. Marie News, November 25, 1899)

"The council visited Riverside cemetery in a body Wednesday to look over the ground and investigate the advisability of purchasing the property for a city cemetery. The cemetery has been offered to the city for $8,000, the amount it has cost the Cemetery Association. Many notable improvements have been made upon it by the present owners and in view of this the amount asked seems hardly disproportionate. The cemeteries on the hill are taxed to their capacity and a new location will soon become an imperative necessity. The matter will probably be settled at the next meeting of the council."
