July 5, 1920 — A Special Riverton Parade

The Historical Society of Riverton’s published a series of articles about World War I and Rivertonian’s part in the war effort. Once the battles were over, they honored those who returned home with the most spectacular Independence Day parade ever seen in Riverton.  In A Grateful Community, the May 2017 Gaslight News issue, check out a full description of the parade and some outstanding photos from the day.

Enjoy some photos in our gallery!  Special thanks to the Historical Society of Riverton for the publication of their collection of images.
