To reach this cemetery from Monroe Street turn northwest onto Northwest Blvd and continue to Meehan Drive where you turn left. Continue this winding street past Spokane Falls Community College to Government Way where you turn left or south and continue for about a mile. You will see Greenwood Memorial Terrace on the right just after Mount Nebo Cemetery, then Riverside Memorial Park is on the left side of Government Way.

Greenwood Memorial Terrace and Riverside Memorial Park are 2 of a total of 7 cemeteries owned and maintained by the Fairmount Cemetery Association, with the records for each are kept in the office at Greenwood, however one may find information for all 7 of the cemeteries owned by this corporation at any of the cemetery offices.

Riverside Memorial Park and Greenwood Memorial Terrace are two separate cemeteries situated across the road from each other. The business office is now at the Greenwood office for both cemeteries, which sometimes confuses people.

This transcription includes more than one source. I have been collecting names from obits, as well as in the state archives, plus I walked and read a portion of this cemetery. I dream of one day being able to finish it. Doubtful as each day I grow older and people keep dying. I have photos of those in the Fraternal Section as well as several others.

I called Fraternal a section. Then I find out the cemetery calls most of the different areas 'lawns' of which there are about three dozen or more. I may not have all of them named correctly and some are called gardens. There are several smaller family mausoleums here as well as the larger mausoleum at the north end of the cemetery. Several of the lawns also have a columbarium wall as well as inground burials.
