The birthplace of the California citrus boom is none other than Riverside, California. Riverside is the county seat of Riverside County, both deriving their names from their proximity to the Santa Ana River. Home to roughly 310,000 residents, Riverside is the most populous city in the county and the Inland Empire. Furthermore, it is the twelfth most populous city in California and the fifty-ninth most populous city in the United States. Riverside is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area, only fifty-five miles east of Downtown Los Angeles. The city was founded in the early 1870s and is home to the largest Mission Revival Style building in the nation, the Mission Inn, the Riverside National Cemetary, and the University of California, Riverside.
Other points of interest in Riverside include the Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree, the California Museum of Photography, the Fox Performing Arts Center, Riverside Metropolitan Museum, and the California Citrus State Historic Park. Additionally, there are great options for shopping and dining, and excellent real estate opportunities in the city’s many remarkable neighborhoods and subdivisions. One such neighborhood is that of Wood Streets.
Wood Streets has a long history and until 1913 was devoted to orange groves. It wasn’t until Tequesquite Arroyo was filled so Magnolia Avenue could connect with Downtown Riverside that the area became desirable as a residential neighborhood. This community is perhaps the most cohesive of the city, with the neighborhood and street designs reflecting traditional aesthetics. There is a charming 1920s ambiance here as a result of the gorgeous landscaping and narrow streets. Most homes in the Wood Streets area were built prior to World War II and therefore reflect early designs. Wood Streets real estate is diverse in style, as was common in the early part of the 20th century.
