Riverview Farmstead Preserve is a historical island in modern suburbia. Join us to examine the inside of the 19th century buildings and to explore the grounds of the preserve. Discover three generations of the Clow family – prominent settlers in Wheatland Township. An interpreter will share stories of life during this time, as well as the growth of “Riverview” from a humble homestead to a commercial farm of more than 200 acres.
