Riverside Cemetery is an historic cemetery at 745 Pleasant Street in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It occupies a parcel of land about 34 acres (14 ha) in size between Pleasant Street and the Seekonk River, and just north of the much larger Swan Point Cemetery in neighboring Providence. The cemetery was established in 1874, and is Pawtucket's instance of a rural cemetery.
The cemetery's creation was championed by John W. Davis, a local politician who later served two terms as Governor of Rhode Island, and was for many years the cemetery's resident manager, living in the cemetery manager's house, which was built around the time of the cemetery's founding. The cemetery has been run by descendants of John W. Davis since its inception in 1874.
