|The 1st official Riverside Poly Football Team was created in
1916. They were the Champions that year. They were not
qualified with CIF and as a result they did not receive a
pennant. Click Here
|The intent of this site is to bring a different light to the History of
Riverside. The common folk are rarely discussed. History only
tells the stories of those who caused significant changes that
affect many. What about that common family that lived in your
house 50 or 100 years ago? Where did they work? What store
was at a specific address on Main Street in downtown? The
Pioneers where those common folks. Those people who took on
responsibilities for their town and home. They are the ones who
made things happen. They were willing to help in any way they
were able to help anyone. They were the ones who made our
city grow and prosper.
|We found lots of information on Pioneers of Riverside.
Please note, this is a work in progress.
Here is a link to some old Riverside post cards.
View some old photos of some of the Pioneers of Riverside.
Many were just ordinary folks doing ordinary jobs in an
means to create a new project designed to bring all of the
Pioneer Names and additional information, to one site.
