ABOUT RIVERVIEW NEIGHBORHOOD: The Riverview Historic District is an excellent and representative collection of houses and apartment buildings constructed from 1911 to 1938. While the Craftsman bungalow style dominates, other popular architectural styles in the district include Tudor Revival, Prairie School, and Colonial Revival. Although Riverview is predominately a middle-class neighborhood, the district also contains a number of larger, better-appointed homes built by many of the leading citizens of early Tulsa, including the Clinton-Hardy House, the Bird House, the Kerr House, and the magnificent McBirney mansion.

In addition to their historic association with the majority of single-family homes, these apartment buildings are compatible in design and architectural styles with the neighborhood-at-large. Riverview was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on September 6, 2007 under National Register criteria C. Its NRIS number is 07000906.
