Riverside, NJ

Riverside, New Jersey has a rich and interesting history. Samuel Bechtold founded Riverside, first called “Progress,” in 1851 as a resort town. People came here to enjoy our forests, meadows, streams and ponds. In the summertime, Philadelphia became quite oppressive. So, it was a breath of fresh air to vacation in Riverside’s country atmosphere.

Riverside once housed the world’s largest watch case manufacturer, doing business around the globe from the Philadelphia Watch Case Company Building. It was in an era when everyone carried a pocket watch. The building’s clock tower has become a Riverside landmark.
