Own a piece of Riverside history, the John Clarke Dore cottage

Dore Cottage (1869)

The Village of Riverside's story is too storied to bear repeating, but if you're interested you can visit the websites of the Village and the Riverside Historical Museum.

Dore Cottage Plaque

One of the oldest homes in Riverside is the John Clarke Dore cottage, 100 Fairbank Rd, built in 1869. The home has had only five owners in its long history, and is now seeking a sixth.

The nearly 3,000 square foot home has 4 bedrooms, 1 full and 2 half baths and a 3-car garage. Four original marble fireplaces are still intact. It's priced at $950,000.

The home looks out on a riverfront park a short walk from downtown Riverside and a Metra station.

Coldwell Banker's Lisa Clemente has the listing.
