History of Community
Riverdale has been unique since the planning stages. The city was constructed between 1946 and 1950 to provide housing for government workers and contractors during the construction of Garrison Dam.
The city was designed in the shape of a half moon as viewed from the air. Streets are named for the states which make up the Missouri Basin: Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota (North & South), Minnesota, Missouri, Montana and Wyoming.
