Making an Inventory
The Doc-A-Block program is the first major initiative of the Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery. The goal of the project is to document the cemetery's monuments, creating an inventory of priorities and preserving, through documentation, as much of the details of the cemetery's rich statuary as is possible.

How You Can Help
Volunteers interested in this key project at Riverside will be taking detailed information on each of the markers in their block. After taking the survey for each marker in the block, you will enter the information online. If you'd like to volunteer for this project, plan on committing time for a training session, about 20-40 hours of work in the cemetery, followed by 20-40 hours of time entering the results of the surveys using your home computer, depending on the size of your block (and you can choose a block that fits the amount of time you're willing to spend). These hours can be fit into your schedule, with the exception of the training session. If you'd like to know more about about this project, please e-mail Kate Barnes at

Upcoming Training Sessions
Saturday, July 25th 10:00 at Ironton studios (will caravan to Riverside afterwards for hands-on practice)
Saturday, August 15th 10:00 (Location TBA)
