Conceived by the Riverside Historical Commission and written by Lonni Sacchi & Constance Guardi, this historical account of the Village of Riverside was published in 2012.
The authors have chosen photographs that illustrate the wide range of human experience that has transpired upon Olmsted's palette. In pictures and text, this is Riverside - how it came to be, the men that built it, and how it slowly, yet inexorably, grew and persevered through boom and bust to achieve the vision for which it was intended and endures to be today.
This book is part of the Images of America series published by Arcadia Publishing Company. The series is meant to play a part in the preservation of local heritage making history available to all.
Dedicated to the memory of Judith Cizek, Historical Commission Chairperson 2009-2013
The East Well House serves as the museum's headquarters and primary exhibition space.
