Before his work on the White City, Frederick Law Olmsted created the storybook village of Riverside, a magical place of curving streets, gas lamps, and charming parks. It has since inspired architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan to create some of their most beautiful works. Over 80 landmark structures representing 143 years of iconic American architecture dot the village. Come and experience this very special American place, a place with a hidden history that may surprise you.
