A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Riverside ...
Although we found mention of Riverside during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Riverside was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Riverside was located in Johnson County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Riverside to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Riverside - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Riverside, please Contact Us.
When the people of Riverside refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Riversider<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Riverside might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Riverside would be found within the (307) area code.
Adding Riverside to Our Gazetteer ...
As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.
Our notes show that the earliest dated mention that we've found for Riverside was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
