Riverside

Riverside NJ is located in Burlington County New Jersey and is 1.6 square miles. This little piece of heaven has a population of just under 8,000 according to the 2010 census. Riverside sits along the shore of the Rancocas Creek and borders Delran and Delanco. It was incorporated as a township in 1895 made out of portions of Delran.

I had the pleasure of living in Riverside for a few years and absolutely loved it. It’s a small town with so much character and history. Plus, Samuel Bechtold founded Riverside (called “Progress”) in 1851 as a resort town and I share the same last name! Pretty cool, huh? People would leave the hustle and bustle of Philadelphia and come relax in Riverside. Samuel is buried in the Riverside cemetery right off of Bridgeboro St.

Riverside NJ is known for BOOST which is a drink that some say tastes like flat coke. Benjamin Faunce, who was a pharmacist on Scott Street, invented BOOST (known as Tak-A-Boost at the time) and would offer it up to patients to ease an upset stomach or to help with swallowing medicine. It became so popular that he trademarked it in 1913 and it’s a huge hit in the town to this day. Many people drink BOOST instead of their morning coffee!

At one time Riverside had the largest watch case manufacturer where it would export all over the world. People would regularly use pocket watches then. The building still stands as a landmark of the town.

Riverside NJ was also featured in the movie Jesus’ Son.
