State Board Recommends Riverside Cemetery for Listing on Registers of Historic Places

On March 11, 2011, the New York State Board for Historic Preservation recommended the addition of Riverside Cemetery in Lowman to the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Riverside Cemetery is one of the earliest surviving cemeteries in Chemung County and is the final resting place of many of the area’s earliest settlers, including several veterans of the American Revolution and the War of 1812, most of whose homes and farms have vanished.
