Welcome To Riverside

The town of Riverside Washington is locate just a few minuts drive North from Omak. 
The early prosperity of Riverside was due mostly to its road location, freight teams and river boats using it as a convenient stopover for loading and unloading of supplies. The Okanogan River flowed past Riverside, in the spring the river swelled with melting snow pack from high in the mountains. That was the period of activity and a fleet of loaded steamer boats brought a steady stream of supplies to Riverside, the center for a vast area of mining and farming communities. As soon as floodwaters subsided, river traffic was finished for another year. The railroad bypassed the town in 1914, a blow to Riverside that depended on road and river traffic for survival. The final stroke came when a modern highway was built to the north of the town.
