This survey report was completed at the request of the Town of Riverdale Park under the Planning Assistance to Municipalities and Communities Program. The purpose of the survey was to collect general data about the architectural and historical character of the original 1889 Riverdale Park subdivision and a smaller adjacent subdivision platted in 1906 as West Riverdale. This report updates a similar survey completed in 1991. This report is designed to provide preliminary findings about the potential eligibility of the study area for listing in the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District and for potential designation as a Historic District under the Prince George’s County Historic Preservation Ordinance. The report contains general historical background information, a description of research methodology, a set of findings about the architectural character of the study area, recommendations on eligibility for historic district designation, and potential actions to follow this report. The report’s appendices include a detailed building inventory, a glossary of building forms and styles, and local, state and federal historic preservation policies and guidelines. The report is illustrated with maps and photographs.
