Riverside, the Farnsley-Moreman Landing

You might think there's a lot of history to be discovered at Riverside; it was a thriving riverboat landing throughout most of the 1800s, after all. But there's even more history than that, as the site itself dates much further back in time. Long before the Greek Revival house was built by the Farnsley family and subsequently bought by the Moremens, the site was home to Native American cultures for thousands of years. Ongoing archaeological digs reveal both the history of the Farnsley and Moremen families who called this place home--as well as the pre-historic Native Americans who lived here before them. Today, visitors can take a tour through the millennia by dropping in on Civil War–era living in the reconstructed kitchen and experiencing even more ancient times by examining the stone tools and pottery discovered in ongoing archaeological excavations. The 1837 Greek Revival Farnsley-Moremen House stands at the center and stretches across 300 acres while showcasing spectacular scenic views of the Ohio River.

The docents are very knowledgeable and share great stories! Talk to the archeologists if you get a chance! Fascinating place!

Wonderful knowledgeable guide. She brought you back to the time this home was first built and the two families that occupied it. Helped you understand the physical demands and social confines of those times. How proud one should be of the pioneers of those days. Highly recommend!
