In the will of the late Cary C. Barr a bequest was provided to Riverview Cemetery for $40,000 to be used to erect a memorial to his wife, Mary Urban Barr. The memorial chapel and administration building were dedicated in 1932. There is a chapel with seating for 100 people, as well as offices and additional rooms. Concrete receiving vaults were built beneath the chapel and a hoist was installed to raise caskets from the vault area to the chapel.
