Other towns and villages that used this cemetery: Fayette, Rocheport, Booneville, and Mexico (post-1921).

Cemetery Hours: closes at dusk but superintendent lives on property. The cemetery is land-marked with a caretaker paid by Columbia Cemetery Association. Cemetery was established in 1880. Barth Family and others were buried here. The cemetery is active for the Conservative and Reform community. The urban cemetery location is on flat land and part of a municipal cemetery, marked by a sign: Columbia Cemetery. A continuous fence and a gate that locks surround the cemetery, reached by turning directly off a public road. Municipal: 34 acres, Jewish section: 1 acre, The cemetery is divided into special sections for Cohanim and children. Date of oldest gravestone: 1881. Tombstones date from 19th century and 20th century. 20-100 gravestones are in cemetery, regardless of condition or position, in original location and less than 25% of surviving stones toppled or broken. The marble, granite, limestone, sandstone and military tombstones and memorial markers are flat shaped stones, finely smoothed and inscribed stones, flat stones with carved relief decoration, double tombstones, horizontally set stones, flat/low inground plaques, and obelisks. Inscriptions on tombstones are English and Hebrew. The municipality owns the cemetery property now used for Jewish cemetery purposes only. Properties adjacent to the cemetery are commercial. Private visitors visit the cemetery occasionally.

Past maintenance includes re-erection of stones, patching of broken stones, and clearing of vegetation by local authorities. The Columbia Cemetery has an office on the grounds as well as mausoleums, etc. but the Jewish section has nothing but trees and stones, no structures. I doubt there is any sort of threat although vandals would have no problem entering the Jewish section by hopping over the fence. Scott D. Latman (1332 Jill Terrace, Homewood, IL 60430 c689830@showme.missouri.edu) completed this survey on 5/18/99 using deeds at Courthouse.

Bnai Sholem Cemetery: The cemetery is actually a separate, walled-off section within the extremely scenic Riverside Cemetery, high on the top of the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, with the town and the river far below. Well maintained, the cemetery is hard to find, south of town off of highway 79 about a mile, and then up a dirt road and through the entire length of the rest of the Riverside cemetery.
