The use of the Riverside House by the community is an extension of the Junior League of Jacksonville’s efforts to be involved in all aspects of Jacksonville’s broad scope of activities and needs. By opening the Riverside House to the community, and offering a special non-profit rental rate, the Junior League has provided Jacksonville with a much needed service.

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
