Riverside Historical Society


Riverside Historical Society meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at the American Legion Post 146 located at 212 American Legion Drive on the corner of Monroe Street and American Legion Drive.

Meetings begin at 7:00 pm and are open to the general public.

Join us at our next meeting on Wednesday, April 20th - At the end of the Civil War in April 1865, the US was plunged into mourning when President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated during a conspiracy to decapitate the Union government led by actor John Wilkes Booth.  Relive the story of the conspirators, their escapes, captures and punishments, at the Riverside Historical Society's meeting at 7 PM on Wednesday, 20 April 2016, in the American Legion Hall.  Presenter Hal Pschunder will bring out some interesting coincidences, and discuss some conspirators and collaborators who were never punished.

We Hope To See You There
