Riverton is a long established and well developed residential borough in the northwestern corner of Burlington County. It is situated on the Delaware River. With its sidewalks, gas lamps and Victorian flavor, the town has maintained a charm through the decades by the ever present care and volunteer spirit that its residents possess. Riverton has expanded gradually and systematically over the decades. Within its 3/4 of a square mile area neighborhoods display more than 150 years of American architectural styles. Six Victorian styles are represented in the earliest part of Riverton. More than half of Riverton's buildings are included in the State and National Directories of Historic Places. One of the oldest and still active yacht clubs in the country, Riverton Yacht Club, is located here. Downtown, the new Riverline Light Rail system has contributed to a resurgence in public transportation. The Riverline offers daily service shuttling travelers between metro Camden and Trenton with connections to Philadelphia and New York City.
