Overview of Riverdale

Located just a few miles south of Atlanta is the charming, historic community of Riverdale. This bustling community serves as a cultural and recreational center in the area.

Riverdale apartments for rent can be found across the city in various neighborhoods. These areas all offer residents different amenities, but all provide the hospitality and friendliness common in this small city.

Living in Riverdale, GA

Settlers were living in the area now known as Riverdale long before the Civil War. The community was primarily agricultural for years, and in 1887 a new railroad offered farmers a way to transport and sell crops. In addition to using the freshly laid tracks to sell products, farmers also sold wood to the railroad to use in construction. This resulted in a mutually beneficial relationship for both parties.

The railroad resulted in a new industry in town: fertilizer. Trains brought fertilizer into town, and this allowed many residents to get involved in the business. As the small town flourished with assistance from the railroad, it began to consider incorporation. The bill making the incorporation request was approved in 1908. The city was named after the prominent local Rivers family. 

Riverdale has changed over the years, but it still retains the charm it once had as a small farming community. The city is currently home to 15,251 residents, according to July 2011 data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Its modest population gives it a unique small-town atmosphere, but it still provides residents with modern day amenities.

Riverdale Work and Study

Those interested in pursuing a degree in Riverdale can look into attending nearby Clayton State University. Located in Morrow - about five miles east - the college is conveniently located for students residing in Riverdale. With a range of undergraduate and graduate degrees to choose from, students have the option to study a wide range of subjects. This diverse institution also offers multiple activities and clubs to promote student involvement outside the classroom.

There are a range of employers in Riverdale who employ a large percentage of the local population. Major companies such as Wal-Mart, Kroger and Home Depot employ numerous Riverdale residents. The public sector employs many citizens as well, with the city of Riverdale, Riverdale Senior High School and Riverdale Elementary School also topping the list of large employers in the community.

Rentals in Riverdale, GA, and Cost of Living

Typical apartments in Riverdale rent from about $650 to $900 per month, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The same data indicates that the median gross monthly rent is $790.

Some residents may find that the cost of living in Riverdale is reasonable, given its close proximity to Atlanta. Those who work in Atlanta may find that Riverdale is the perfect commuter city, providing plenty of urban amenities while still allowing residents to enjoy a quiet life in the suburbs with their families.

Riverdale Attractions and Special Events

One of the city's largest events is the annual Riverdale's Seafood and Beer Festival. The event features live entertainment, a beer garden, a car show and plenty of food. This festival allows residents to relax with friends and neighbors while enjoying the best drinks and food the city has to offer.

Riverdale also features a variety of classes and workshops for citizens. Residents can take the opportunity to learn new skills or meet other locals. Yoga, nutrition, acting and graphic design are just a few of the activities offered.
