The Riverside Neighborhood was first platted in 1868 and was annexed by Jacksonville in 1887. Its greatest growth occurred between the Great Fire of 1901 and the failure of the 1920s Florida land boom. Today, the Riverside homes and neighborhood are notable for their particularly diverse architecture and their emphasis on planning and historic preservation. This has made it one of Florida's most architecturally varied neighborhood. It is listed as a National Register Historic Districts.
