PO Box 571 | Kankakee, IL 60901 | 815-207-3624
Take a ride, walk or drive through one of Kankakee County’s Historic neighborhoods. Historic Riverview sits along the banks of the Kankakee River. Enjoy custom built, carefully restored homes - some more than 100 years old - including two of Frank Lloyd Wright designs. Emory Cobb is credited for his efforts in establishing the Historic Riverview District. In his honor, Cobb Park is now located where the popular attraction, “The Riverview Hotel”, built by Cobb in 1887 once stood. Visit the district’s website for their annual holiday house walk.
