  • Description

    Riverton, N.J., in Burlington County is a tiny little town of under 3,000 residents. Its known for its fine examples of Victorian residential architecture, the Riverton Yacht Club and Riverton Country Club. Located only 10 miles from Philadelphia on the Delaware River, the town was a summer playground for some of Philadelphia’s wealthiest businessmen, including the Biddle, Clothier, Parrish and Wharton families. An excellent written history of the town, written by Betty Hahle, is offered here. The “wet side” near the river or the “dry side” closer to the country club is simply shorthand that residents use to when talking about their town.

    Riverton is a very walkable community thanks to its compact size. Its business district is small with a few shops, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, fitness center, pizza shop, tea shop and other independent businesses.

    The Riverton Yacht Club is one of the oldest such clubs in the U.S., founded in 1865.  It bills itself as “friend and informal” and hosts regattas each Wednesday evening and most weekends throughout the summer. The most active fleets are J/22, Lightning, Mariner, Flying Scott, and two cruising classes: PHRF A, and PHRF B. It also hosts the prestigious Governor’s Cup Regatta each June.

    Riverton Country Club, technically next door to its namesake town in Cinnaminson, N.J., is a member-owned club founded in 1900. Its Donald Ross-designed course is much the same as it was 100 years ago. The club offers golf, tennis, swimming, dining, and private-event space.

    Single-family homes form the majority of the housing stock in Riverton. Most of Riverton is served by the Palmyra Boro School District, though some streets are part of Cinnaminson Township School District. Nearby private school options include popular Moorestown Friends, a Quaker day school.

    The New Jersey Transit Riverline, a light-rail system that connects Camden and Trenton, N.J., provides quick access into Philadelphia with one transfer to the PATCO high-speed line in Camden.
