Previously known as Dogget, the town of Riverside came into being as a means of getting to the important town of Encampment. It was merely a stopping point along the way. A man named Dogget established a store and a few cabins where travelers could stay overnight. Along about 1900, the town changed its name to Riverside. A forty-room hotel was constructed, burned and was re-built. The hotel was about all Riverside had to offer. When Encampment started to decline because of low copper prices and eventually was abandoned, so was the hotel and Riverside. SUBMITTED BY: Henry Chenowith
