Riverdale: Community with a Past and Potential

  • Aired: 01/20/2010

  • Rating: NR
Many small communities, with rich historic pasts, are located throughout the Ozarks. From time to time, and for a variety of reasons, some of these communities disappear---still they continue to exist through their historical significance and often a nostalgic popularity with area residents. One of these is the former community of Riverdale in Christian County, Missouri.
