The history of Riverside, the southern section of Gill bordering the Connecticut River, includes archaeological significance for the continuous presence of Native Americans who came to fish at the Falls, some of the town’s oldest homes and families, the early 1800s discovery of dinosaur tracks, the development of water power for manufacturing at the Falls, growth of the logging industry on the River, experimental farming, and 19th-century immigration and residential settlement. Ephemera and photographs in the town’s historical collection, interviews with life-long Riverside residents, and daily diaries from 1872 to 1905 have informed the text. Written and edited by members of the Gill Historical Commission with chapters by other local historians and archaeologists.
