Town Of Riverdale ParkMuch of the area around you — some 1500 acres — was part of Riversdale, a plantation founded in 1801 by an aristocratic Belgian family — the Stiers — who had escaped the terror of the French Revolution and subsequent Napoleonic wars. Daughter Rosalie Stier married George Calvert, a member of Maryland's founding family, and the couple received the plantation from her father Henri upon his return to Europe after the defeat of Napoleon. Riversdale Mansion, a National Historic Landmark and Prince George's County Historic Site, is open to the public and operated by M-NCPPC and the Riversdale Historical Society.
