As the railroad grew, it needed more land. Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Rivers donated their land for the railroad to grow, and their land grew to become one of the railroad's main stops.In 1908, the city was incorporated with the name Riverdale, named in honor of Mr. W.S. Rivers.GeographyRiverdale is in western Clayton County, south of downtown Atlanta and 6mi northwest of Jonesboro, the county seat.According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Riverdale has an area of 11.6sqkm, of which 0.03sqkm, or 0.22%, is water.
