Cemetery Walking Tours

River View Cemetery also offers self-guided cemetery walking tours. Relive some of Portland's and Oregon's past by leisurely strolling, at your own pace, through River View Cemetery's majestic arboretum grounds. Our self-guided tours are set up for short tours, approximate time to complete each is around 20-30 minutes and outlines 10-15 notable sites. Partake in the adventure of locating such celebrities and notables as Virgil Earp, Portland founders and mayors, Oregon governors and statesmen and war veterans. The serene and peaceful setting has visitors encountering trees well over 100 year old, a charming inner cemetery road system and one picturesque scene after another. If you're wanting to know who many of Portland's main streets and landmarks are named after, a stroll through River View Cemetery will provide the answer - names like Terwilliger, Mulhulland, Pittock, Ladd, Corbett, Failing, Benson and Weinhard are just a few.

Simply stop by our office and ask for a free "walking tour". Please allow 30 minutes to complete each self-guided tour. Our terrain is hilly in some places, so please wear comfortable and practical walking shoes.
