Surprises Around Every Bend in Bowling Green, Kentucky

Brick exterior of Riverview at Hobson Grove mansion

History buffs will swoon over Riverview at Hobson Grove. “Something that I hear a lot from our visitors is: ‘We were only planning to stay for a day or two, and we’re finding there’s so much more to do than we anticipated,’” says Brooke Westcott Peterson, Riverview’s executive director. The 1872 estate boasts an extensive collection of antiques and pieces passed down through the family of notable Bowling Green resident Atwood Hobson. Nestled on a luxuriant hilltop, the brick mansion reflects the lifestyle of Victorian-era social elites.
