Historical Significance

Riverside Cemetery has a total area of 36. 4 acres with the most significant monuments erected between 1870 and 1920. A walk along the meandering paths brings one face to face with the burial places of Waterbury’s brass barons, inventors, thinkers, activists, cultural icons and entrepreneurs. Also within the confines of this rural retreat are the bodies of our Puritan ancestors whose remains were transferred from the Ancient Burying Ground (1695), once located at the present site of the Silas Bronson Library on Grand Street, to Riverside in the 1890’s.
