Brief DescriptionItalianate house museum & Civil War historic site
TypeAttraction
CategoryMuseum
DescriptionRiverview, classic example of Italianate architecture--arched windows, deep eaves with ornamental brackets, & cupola. Painted ceilings. Home of Atwood and Juliet "Julia" van Meter Hobson, was so named because of its proximity to the Barren River. Construction of the hilltop home began in the late 1850s, but was temporarily halted by the Civil War. The partially completed home became a munitions magazine while the Confederates held Bowling Green during the winter of 1861-62. Riverview was finally completed in 1872. Decorated for the holidays. Open for tours and special events throughout the year.
