The name “Riverview” seems to have been used both for The Abbey when James Knox Polk Pine resided there and for the home and stock farm of James Knox Polk Pine north of the horseshoe formed by the intersection of the River Road and the New Turnpike Road. The house was on the east side of Haughney Road around what is now the Pleasantdale area.
