Riverview Historic District is an architecturally cohesive community that resulted from the evolution and eventual combination of three smaller subdivisions, Riverview Park (platted 1900), Riverside Park (platted 1899), and Cruser Place (platted 1906). All three communities benefited from streetcar service, and their proximity to the Lafayette River and Lafayette Park, a city-owned public park. Larger lots and grander homes in the Colonial Revival and Queen Anne styles dominate the shoreline, but the majority of the buildings are on smaller interior lots and are of a more modest scale. In addition to Queen Anne and Colonial Revival houses, there are many Craftsman, Dutch Colonial, and Tudor Revival dwellings.
