Baxter Springs, KS
Riverton just like neighboring towns was created as a mining town. The hydroelectric plant is responsible for a dam creating a lake on the spring river. The Spring River Inn dated back to the early 1900s and while it served for a while as a boating club reopened to cater for tourists until it burned down and closed permanently.
The Eisler brothers store was originally a gas station and dates back to 1925.
To the west is the last remaining Marsh Arch Rainbow. Riverton used to have a 3 span Marsh Arch Rainbow bridge crossing the Spring River, but it got demolished in 1986 and replaced with the current bridge.
