The Riverside House has recently undergone a historic renovation project. The project included installing a new center aisle, state of the art sound system, new wall and floor coverings, bathroom upgrades and the creation of a new bride’s room.  The Riverside House is quickly filling its rental calendar.  Now is the time to book your event in our fabulous updated space!

Proceeds from the rental of the Riverside House are put back into its upkeep and maintenance in addition to helping support many of the League’s community projects. Choose to hold your event at the Riverside House and support one of Jacksonville’s oldest nonprofits whose purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
