Survey Description
The Heritage Square Historic District consists of a large variety of residential architectural styles popular in southern California from the 1880s to the 1920s, including excellent examples of French Second Empire, Victorian Stick, Shingle, Queen Anne, Eastlake, Mission Revival, Classical Revival, and Craftsman. The scale of the district is predominantly two stories in height and each of the north-south arteries are well landscaped with mature trees. The district contains 150 contributing features and 42 non-contributing features and relatively few vacant parcels for a district of this age. Several notable structures have been moved into this district from other portions of Riverside, including the Victorian Stick style residence at 3255 Mulberry and the Shingle style residence at 3339 Mulberry. The vast majority of the contributing features display a high degree of artistic merit and level of craftsmanship. Even most of the non-contributing features are not intrusive, as they are altered examples from the same period or compatible Craftsman and wood frame English Revival residences from the 1920s.
