The Renovation of the historic Pump House began in March 2006 but the project began much earlier than that. In January of 2003 the River House's Board of Directors made the decision to move from Nathaniel Witherell into our own freestanding facility. The project has been overseen by five Boards of Directors and three Presidents.
After looking at many buildings throughout town it was decided that the 1927 Pump House on the Mianus River would be the perfect place for our new facility. Realizing the need for River House's services, the Town of Greenwich is leasing the building to GADC for $1 a year. The successful completion of River House is the result of of a "Public/Private Partnership". Grants from the State of Connecticut Bond Commission, Greenwich Community Development and the Town of Greenwich in addition to the generous support of so many individuals and foundations in the community made River House a reality.
River House, designed by R.S. Granoff Architects with the guidance of GADC’s Board of Directors, the Building Committee, the staff and many volunteers was built for the River House clients and the growing senior population.
