Heritage House is from a bygone era and remains a special aspect of Riverside’s history. Originally build and owned by Catherine Bettner, orange grove owner, it is a Queen Anne style home where Mrs. Bettner resided until 1928. Owned now by the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, this 1891 Victorian house museum depicts life in turn-of-the century Riverside. An elegant reminder of the affluent homes which once graced Magnolia Avenue, Heritage House began as a project of the Riverside Museum Associates, a volunteer support group of the Riverside Metropolitan Museum. Heritage House, nominated to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, serves as a fine example and reminder of Riverside’s prosperity as a citrus empire at the turn of the twentieth century.
Heritage House is open to the public September through June for docent-led tours. School and adult tours are also available by appointment. Heritage House hosts numerous seasonal events such as a traditional Christmas Open House, an Ice Cream Social, the Chinese Moon Festival, as well as Victorian Teas and Etiquette Teas for children.
