Riverside Train Depot, 11am

Before his work on the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair grounds of the White City, Frederick Law Olmsted created the storybook village of Riverside in 1869 as a place of rest and rejuvenation from the stresses of modern urban living. Today this magical place of curving streets, gas lamps, and charming parks still fulfills Olmsted’s dream. It has since inspired architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan to create some of their most beautiful works. Over 70 landmark structures representing 146 years of iconic American architecture dot the village. The Frederick Law Olmsted Society of Riverside invites you to experience this very special American place, a place with a hidden history that may surprise you.

This 1 ½ to 2 hour docent led tour departs at 11 AM from the east side of the Riverside Main Train Depot, 90 Bloomingbank Rd., Riverside. Price is $15 per person ($10 for Olmsted Society members & seniors 62+) Cash only on day of tour or via PayPal on our Website. Parking is available throughout the village and at the non metered Riverside Swim Club parking lot west of the station on Bloomingbank Road.
