Riverton Borough, Riverton, NJ, established in 1851, is located on the Delaware River. With its sidewalks, gas lamps and victorian flavor, the town has maintained a charm through the decades by the ever-present care and volunteer spirit that its residents possess.


Riverton is home to the Riverton Yacht Club. One of the oldest and still active yacht clubs in the country. Many resident's sailboats make their home at this wonderful landmark. Downtown, the new Riverline Light Rail system has contributed to a resurgence in public transportation. The Riverline offers daily service shuttling travelers between metro Camden and Trenton with connections to Philadelphia and New York City.
