Riverside Farm, also known as Evermay-on-the-Delaware, is a historic hotel located near Erwinna, Tinicum Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The house is a 3 1/2-story, six bay, frame vernacular dwelling with Greek Revival and Italianate style influences. The oldest section of the main house was built in the late 18th century as a two-story, three bay frame structure. Additions to the house occurred between about 1870 and 1883, when it took its present form. A stairwell addition was built in 1982. The front facade features a one-story, flat roofed porch. Also on the property are a contributing tenant house, carriage house, shed, and ice house. The house was built as a private dwelling, then converted for use as a hotel and resort starting about 1870. It operated as an inn until 1930. It reopened in 1982 as a bed-and-breakfast known as EverMay On-The-Delaware.[2] But was closed in 2005 and now operates as a private residence.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
