Designing Death, River View Cemetery: founded in 1882 and located at the west end of the Sellwood bridge, River View Cemetery is the premier 19th century "rural" or "garden cemetery" on the west coast and one of Portland's most beautiful green spaces. A veritable who's who of 19th century Portland resides there but the landscape architecture of rural cemeteries and their entire conception is one the earliest original American art forms and one of the least appreciated. The walk will examine these aspects of River View and its history. Contact event organizer directly for information on student, senior, group, or multiple ticket purchase discounts.
Meeting Point: River View Cemetery Office, 0300 SW Taylor's Ferry Rd.
