Riverside Township is celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Riverside Town Hall on November 2, 2019 and rededicating the building. There was a time capsule placed beneath the cornerstone of the building back in November of 1894. At this year’s event, we will seal in a new time capsule to be opened in 75 years on the 200th Anniversary of the building (2094). Winning essays and poems will be placed inside the new time capsule along with other significant items. Be a part of history and enter today!
