Riversdale Historical Society

The Riversdale Historical Society is Riversdale's volunteer support group organization. The Society raises political and financial support to restore the house and fund interpretation projects. The Society trains the docents who conduct house tours and operate the Museum Shop, which features distinctive books, gifts, and toys--perfect for holiday shopping or special gift.
