Information and photos provided by Myron Hofmeister, Prophetstown Twp.

Prophetstown’s Riverside Cemetery is a beautiful place and home to the final resting place of hundreds of Prophetstown area residents. The history of the cemetery is also fascinating. Not only from the perspective of the lives of those interned there but the physical changes to the location over the decades.

Prophetstown Township Supervisor, Myron Hofmeister, who oversees the care of the cemetery, is seeking historical artifacts such as photos, letters, postcards, obituaries, and news articles involving the Cemetery. He would like to create an historical display in the Riverside Cemetery building.

You are asked to contact Hofmeister at or or call at 815-537-2960.
