In 2014, social historian, Marje Prior was contracted by the NSW government to research and write the history of the Riverside Centre as part of the closure of large residential centres for people with intellectual disability in NSW. This comprehensive history tells the story of the early years of institutionalised care in the Orange Mental Hospital, the Riverside years on the Bloomfield Hospital campus and finally, the relocation of the Riverside residents into their new homes in Orange and Bathurst. On The Stone published the book for Ageing, Disability and Home Care,  NSW Department of Family and Community Services in 2016.
