A 12-Pack Tour of Oshkosh’s Riverside Cemetery
With the Halloween season here, there’s no better time to visit Oshkosh’s incredible Riverside Cemetery. The cemetery was established in 1855 and even a short walk along its winding roads will turn up one familiar Oshkosh name after another. Lurking among those well-known names are the markers for the brewers and saloon keepers who made Oshkosh a hot-spot for good beer in the years before Prohibition.
To help us all get in touch with our beery roots, we’ve put together a self-guided tour of the Riverside Cemetery that stops for visits with 12 of Oshkosh’s beer giants of yore. Click on the link below to download a six-page PDF, which is filled with pictures and stories about Oshkosh’s beer-loving past along with directions for finding your way around the cemetery to locate each of the grave sites included in the tour. Happy haunting!
