Historical Society of Riverton & Our Library

Headed by Keith Betten and Iris Gaughan of the Historical Society of Riverton, they have been hard at work coordinating volunteers to catalog the HSR Archives.  Of course, this includes what was already within the HSR collection as well as adding newly-found gems that had not made it into the collection.  The goal is make the collection available online once this project is completed.

One recent addition is a photo that was found in the “old basement” of the library.  This must be an early photo of the library — note that a rhododendron on the left has yet to be planted, yet the name above the door proudly displays the original name of the building — Edward H. Ogden Memorial Building, named after Riverton’s first mayor.  Our first library building was donated by his widow, Sarah Morris Perot Ogden.  For more history of our library check out our History page.
