Riverview is a nationally designated historic district comprised of approximately 160 homes built between 1890 and 1950. Each home is architecturally distinct. Mature oak and maple trees line the streets giving a cozy boulevard feel from the tree canopy. The neighborhood is set along the Kankakee River with sweeping river views from Cobb Park. The neighborhood gets its name from the grand Victorian-era Hotel Riverview which stood from 1887 until 1897 near today’s Cobb Park.
