Located in southern Illinois in Alexander County across from Magnolia Manor, this elegant Victorian mansion is a photographer's delight.

Riverlore was built in 1865 for Captain William Parker Halliday who was the president of Cairo's first bank. His earlier steamboat career prompted him to build a Captain's Walk atop the third story of the house. Beautiful gardens surround the home of this private residence. Not open to the public.

Location: 2723 Washington Av., Cairo Illinois 62914
