Riverton (Images of America) (Hardcover)
Nestled on the Delaware River between Philadelphia and Trenton, Riverton is a quintessential small town in the United States of America. Founded during the Victorian era with deep Quaker roots, Riverton holds fast to its close-knit community spirit and rich historic treasures. The aspirations of the early founders can still be felt in some rare images of the grand old homes and those whose lives matched their quiet splendor. Enjoy photographs of some of the borough's well-known institutions that have stood the test of time, such as the iconic Riverton Yacht Club, Porch Club of Riverton, and Riverton Country Club. Many of them endure as familiar icons of our community, but lesser-known stories wait to be told through these exceptional visual accounts of days gone by. Step back in time with pictures of early Fourth of July celebrations and regatta races, and see the true birthplaces of the legendary Duster sailboat and the drive-in theater that forever changed the way people experience movies.
