More About Riverview Amusement Park by Dolores Haugh
 
 
 
Overview
Every summer from 1904 to 1967, for 63 years, Riverview the world s largest amusement park opened its gates to millions of people from all walks of life. For three generations, the Schmidt s family park offered rides, shows, food, and music to men, women, and especially children. Riverview survived depressions, two World Wars, labor disputes, Prohibition, and a World s Fair that threatened to take a great deal of its business. Riverview Amusement Park tells the story of Riverview s growth from 22 acres and three rides to 140 acres and more than 100 attractions. Through an extensive collection of never-before published images, author Dolores Haugh chronicles the tale of this impressive chapter of Chicago history. Known as the Roller Coaster Capital of America, Riverview remained a Chicago landmark until it was unexpectedly closed in 1967."
