Riverdale, Georgia


Part of the Atlanta metro area, Riverdale is a "small-town" city located in Clayton County, Georgia. The suburban community, which boasts a diverse and dynamic community, lies just about 12 miles south of downtown Atlanta in what is called the "Southern Crescent." Clayton County seat, Jonesboro, is located about 6 miles to the city's southeast. Riverdale is overseen by a mayor and four-member council which select a city manager to supervise its departments.


Settlers arrived at the present location of Riverdale in the 1860s, before Georgia became involved in the Civil War. A railroad linking Atlanta to Fort Valley passed through the area in 1887. The railroad later on ran into difficulties in securing land for its operations, including construction of a depot and side tracks. A local couple, Mr. and Mrs. W.S. Rivers, were said to have made a generous land donation to the railroad, which led to the creation of an important stop in the community. Riverdale was named after the Rivers for their generosity and was incorporated in 1908.
