Thomas Wolfe and O. Henry are buried here at Riverside Cemetery, along with many other famous folks of the past that are a part of Asheville's history. Located in the downtown area of Asheville, this historic cemetery lends itself to quiet, peaceful rolling hills that are surrounded by the beautiful mountains and the historic neighborhood of Montford. Stroll this cemetery and pay your respects to two great authors of the South. Pre-arranged "walking tours" are available at no charge.
