A HISTORY OF RIVERVALE

Rivervale was known as Barndon Hill until 1884. Barndon Hill was named after Richard Barndon, who in 1843 ran an inn called the Brewers Arms which was built on the track towards Guildford. The rise on which the inn was built became known as Barndon Hill and the immediate area as Barndon. Rivervale was first used as the name of a railway station on the Perth Armadale line, and was later adopted as the name of the suburb in 1924. It is a descriptive name derived from its location on the Swan River.
