History[edit]

Early history[edit]

The Riverside Press headquarters as it appeared in 1911 and, in the top right-hand corner, the original facility from 1852.

Riverside originated in 1852 as The Riverside Press, a book printing plant in Boston, Massachusetts. Henry Houghton originally started The Riverside Press in an old Cambridge building along the banks of the Charles River.

In 1880, George Mifflin entered into a partnership with Henry Houghton and together founded and led Houghton Mifflin Company. They soon established an educational department and quickly expanded the company's educational offerings.

Modern era[edit]

Beginning with the publication of the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale during World War I, Houghton Mifflin became increasingly involved in publishing standardized tests. The Riverside Publishing Company was officially established as a wholly owned subsidiary of Houghton Mifflin in 1979.

Riverside Publishing’s national headquarters and editorial offices are located in the Atrium Corporate Center at 3800 Golf Road and Route 53 in the Chicago suburb of Rolling Meadows. This facility houses the company’s senior management, accounting, sales and marketing, customer service, educational and clinical assessments, quality assurance, information technology, state contract management, publishing processes, custom assessments departments, and measurement research departments.
