This free event provides docent-led tours of historic buildings that seldom have their “doors open”. Locations include not only private buildings, but churches, museums, and more. Most locations are returning including the historic County Court House. New additions to the event include Cesar Chavez Center and the Weber House on University, the Henry Jekel Building at Cal Baptist and Heritage House on Magnolia, and the RCC Quad and Coil School for the Arts downtown.
Locations may have different tour times within the 10am to 4pm time frame so attendees are advised to check the City hosted website, www.DoorsOpenRiverside.com, which also provides a mobile/web map and Google map. Tours will start on the hour and half with a guide and volunteer to explain architectural and historic features of the building. The main Information Booth will be located on Mission Inn Avenue in front of the Main Library Branch. Doors Open Riverside maps will also be available at participating locations.
The event is a partnership between the City of Riverside, the Riverside Downtown Partnership, and the Mission Inn Foundation and Museum. Docents from the Mission Inn Museum provide information on the history and special features of these building during the tours.
