Colony Heights Historic District

Riverside City, Riverside County, CA


This residential district was part of the Southern California Colony Association's 1870 purchase and lies immediately north of the original "Mile Square" boundaries. As part of the area's second wave of residential growth and development, Colony Heights boasts some of Riverside's finest examples of early twentieth century architectural styles including Craftsman, Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, and Colonial Revival. A significant concentration of the residences were designed and built by well-known local architects, such as G. Stanley Wilson, Henry L.A. Jekel, and L.C. Waldman. [1]
