|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Riverview Cemetery is located at 401 Riverview Cemetery Road in Chelan.
In August 1929, J. A. Van Slyke donated 5 acres for the Riverview
Cemetery and burials began that month. Even though it had been named the
Cemetery, Mr. Van Slyke said he would like it to be called the Memorial
Cemetery. Early records actually referred to it as the Memorial Cemetery.
There are few headstones dating further back than 1929 for people who
brought over from the Fraternal Cemetery. Additional headstones date
prior than 1929 are actually memorial headstones for some buried on their
homestead or are still located in the Fraternal Cemetery. There are to be
no upright headstones allowed, only markers, in order to preserve the
natural beauty of the cemetery. The Chelan County Cemetery District #4
oversees both the Fraternal Cemetery and the Riverview Cemetery and can
be reached at (509) 682-5743.
