Riverview at Hobson Grove is a non-profit historic house museum--the only one in Bowling Green. Established in 1972, Riverview was established to preserve the cultural, historical, and architectural heritage of the house and to educate visitors about its significance in South Central Kentucky during the Civil War and after. The support of staff and volunteers allows Riverview to educate the public with tours, lectures, special events, and other activities of educational value. Besides tour fees, Riverview receives funding from the city of Bowling Green, and the volunteer support of the Friends of Riverview through memberships, donations, and annual fundraisers.
Your participation as an annual member of the Friends of Riverview ensures the preservation and interpretation of the historic house, ensures these important activities will continue to educate future generations, and supports one of Bowling Green's special resources. Membership dues pay for general expenses with excess funds raised through dues to be used for specific purposes directly related to the museum collection, preservation and interpretation of Riverview and its presentation to the public. We need everyone's help preserve this landmark and to serve visitors, especially area children. Warren County students tour free of charge. Thank you for joining us in our efforts.
