The mansion was built in 1901 by William Kelly, a wealthy turpentine baron of the time. His craftsmanship in design endures today in the solid heart of pine floors, wainscoting, crown moldings and the original painted shingle façade. This home has a striking blend of Shingle Style and Queen Anne Style.
The Waln family purchased the building in 2002, working tirelessly to restore the dilapidated building and transform it into the beautiful Inn that it is today. Two years later, in 2004, the doors opened and welcomed guests and neighbors alike to stay in the heart of Riverside in this curated boutique hotel.
Today, The Riverdale Inn operates on a daily basis and serves visitors to our city.
