I grew up in Rivesville, and have been here all of my life. The people here are friendly, and with open arms always. It's a town misunderstood by outsiders, mainly because we are a low-income area, and a very small town. The scenery is beautiful, with a gorgeous river and surrounding country landscape. Growing up here was absolutely wonderful.

A growing community that loves and supports each other! A craft brewery, record store, and many churches (a sign of an active community.)
Small town, neighborly community. There isn't any stores in the area but has a couple gas stations and some great diners.
