  • More About This Book
Riverdale began as a Native American campsite and pioneer settlement of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The community was dubbed "Stringtown" because homes were threaded together along the main road and the Weber River. The waters of the Weber River and the rich, fertile soil made Riverdale an ideal place for growing crops, and it was soon filled with farms and orchards. It once had its own gristmill, blacksmith shops, and cannery and now has numerous businesses that draw tens of thousands of visitors each day to shop, dine, and play. Riverdale is more than just Riverdale Road, a major thoroughfare that connects cities in Weber County—it is a community of people, schools, churches, parks, and the beautiful Weber River Parkway Trail. The look of Riverdale has drastically changed over time, but the goodness of its people has remained.
