The City of Painesville maintains and operates two municipal cemeteries: Evergreen Cemetery and Riverside Cemetery. The Painesville Cemeteries Office is located at 54 Mentor Ave, Painesville, Ohio and is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Historic Evergreen Cemetery dates back to 1850 and hosts many notable individuals, including the second Governor of Ohio, an Ohio Supreme Court Justice, many well know abolitionists and important advocates of women's rights, a Cleveland Indians pitcher, a Civil War Medal of Honor recipient and veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War. This cemetery has some of the most beautiful, and unique, memorial sculptures in all of Northeast Ohio. With multiple walking trails, peaceful scenery and stunning views of the Grand River, Evergreen is a favorite spot for walkers and photographers alike.
Tranquil and serene Riverside Cemetery was opened in 1953, as Evergreen Cemetery began to near capacity. Consisting of 12 developed acres of land, the City owns another 34 peaceful acres to expand into. Along with traditional spaces available, the cemetery also offers cremation niches at its Columbarium Memorial Gardens as well as cremation burial lots.
