Heritage House

8193 Magnolia Ave, Riverside, CA 92504

Heritage House is an historic house museum in the Queen Anne Victorian style. It is part of the Riverside Metropolitan Museum. The house was built in 1891-92 for Mrs. Catherine Bettner, widow of an early citrus pioneer. The two-story, 4,000 square foot home resides on Magnolia Avenue, which was a prominent thoroughfare at the time of the house's construction. Heritage House is restored to reflect the design and lifestyle of wealthy turn-of-the-century Riverside. In addition to its Queen Anne design, it includes Moorish, Georgian and Chinese elements.
