Riverside-Thomas Cemetery is located six miles west of Blackfoot on Highway 39. Alphes Parsons donated five acres of land to be used as a cemetery. His father, James Parsons, had died in 1887, and was the first person to be buried there. In 1897, an additional five acres was purchased from Mr. Parsons for $10 an acre. In 1984 five additional acres was purchased from Jennie Williams for $2,000 an acre. The cemetery has changed from an area covered with sagebrush, weeds and rocks to a beautiful garden due to the efforts of many local residents, as well as some W.P.A. workers supplied by the government.

The cemetery is also known as Riverside Thomas Cemetery and Thomas Riverside Cemetery.
