The range of architectural styles in the Riverside neighborhood reflects an early period of residential growth in Grand Forks. The architectural character of the houses, their gardens, and public open spaces give the district its significance and unity of feeling. Post-flood alterations, earthen levees, and flood wall infrastructure yield positive benefits to the neighborhood, and enhance public open spaces as a recreational amenity adjacent to the neighborhood. Houses in this working-class neighborhood are mainly wood and stucco bungalows interspersed with brick Craftsman houses and foursquares characteristic of residential suburbs in the first half of the twentieth century.
