Riverside Hutterite Bruderhof of the Dariusleut group, located at Glenwood, Alberta, was founded in 1939 by Preacher Lorenz Tschetter (died 1957), who was chosen preacher in the Stand-Off Colony in 1933 and confirmed there in 1938. The Riverside Hutterite Colony was a division from Stand-Off Colony (Macleod, Alberta, Canada) in 1939.

Lorenz Tschetter was succeeded as leader of the Bruderhof by his brother Peter A. Tschetter who was chosen to the ministry here in 1944 and confirmed in 1948. In 1958 the number of souls in the Bruderhof was 104, the number of baptized members 47. Plans were under way for 50 persons of the Riverside Bruderhof to establish a new Bruderhof at Estuary, Saskatchewan, in the summer of 1958.

A daughter colony of the Riverside Hutterite Colony is the Estuary Hutterite Colony (Leader, Saskatchewan, Canada).

In 2017 the Riverside Hutterite Colony was a Dariusleut colony.
