Riverdale Park and the neighboring community of West Riverdale developed in the late 19th century as streetcar suburbs in central Prince George’s County. The town is located approximately seven miles northeast of downtown Washington, D.C., and is bounded to the north by East-West Highway. The area is also bisected by the heavily traveled Baltimore Avenue (U.S. Route 1). The city of College Park is located to the north, the town of University Park to the east across Baltimore Avenue, and Hyattsville is located to the south and southwest.
More than a century before the settlement and incorporation of Riverdale, the land on which the town is situated was home to one family and their servants–the Calverts of Riversdale. The mansion and its history is a vital part of Riverdale’s heritage and are featured prominently in the town’s redevelopment and revitalization plans and in Prince George’s County cultural events. Perhaps most importantly, Riversdale continues to hold a permanent place in the hearts of the people of the town, who for decades have looked after the mansion as if it were their own.
Since its founding in 1993, the Preservation Association of Riverdale Park
(the group formerly known aspreserveImage the Riverdale Preservation Association) has worked to promote and protect the Town’s historic resources, including more than 400 Victorian and Craftsman homes built since 1890.
