National Register of Historic Places in Santa Cruz County
The Old Riverview Historic District, a colony of modest summer cottages, is the largest intact early 20th century residential neighborhood in Capitola.
The vernacular, bungalow and craftsman architecture and the natural setting on Soquel Creek highlight its important visual amenities. The 1876 train trestle is a pivotal link between the district's 18th century origins as a summer colony and Capitola's development as a prominent California coastal resort.
The Old Riverview Historic District has an area of 138 acres and contains fifty-four contributing buildings and one contributing structure.
