Urban Neighborhoods: Riverside

December 4, 2007 42 comments Open printer friendly version of this article Print Article

Located just south of I-95 and the Fuller Warren Bridge, combined with Avondale, Riverside is one of the largest historic districts in the Southeast.



Riverside's first growth spurt came in 1887, when the streetcar system was expanded to connect the newly annexed rural suburb with downtown.  Following the Great Fire of 1901, the community became a popular place for aspiring architects and their competing residential architectural designs.  Today, Riverside remains a crown jewel amongst Jacksonville's urban neighborhoods.
