On December 23, 2002, the Town of Riverdale Park was granted two National
Register Historic Districts-Riverdale Park (west of Taylor Road and north
to Tuckerman Street on both sides of the B&O Railroad tracks) and West
Riverdale (west of Route 1 to the Hyattsville border). The two districts
were necessary because a historic connection could not be made between the
two areas across Route 1.
