The third installment of the PBS series “10 That Changed America” airs nationally on Tuesday, April 19 at 8 p.m. — and this one will prominently feature the village of Riverside.
WTTW-Channel 11 will air “10 Towns That Changed America” and residents are invited to view the full episode (the village got a sneak preview of the Riverside segment earlier this month) at three local establishments that will be airing the show.
You can watch at The Chew Chew, 33 E. Burlington St.; 34 East Lounge, 34 East Ave.; or at Mollie’s Public House, 31 Forest Ave.
Riverside will be featured for its pioneering landscape design by Frederick Law Olmsted. The other towns featured in the show will be St. Augustine, Florida; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Salt Lake City, Utah; Pullman (Chicago), Illinois; Greenbelt, Maryland; Levittown, New York; Southwest Washington, D.C.; Seaside, Florida; and the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon.
