River­side Tour

Arts and Crafts Homes - - UPFRONT -

As any viewer of DIY Net­work’s “Re­stored” knows, the town of River­side, Cal­i­for­nia, is packed with ex­tra­or­di­nary houses in a va­ri­ety of Arts & Crafts styles. That’s more than enough rea­son to take in the Vin­tage Home Tour, a self-guided event that vis­its five homes. this year's theme is "Henry L.A. Jekel and the Span­ish Colo­nial Re­vival Craze.” Jekel, an ar­chi­tect who de­signed sky­scrapers in the East as well as homes in Cal­i­for­nia, is the sub­ject of a forth­com­ing book due out in Septem­ber.

A $20 ticket ($22 day of show) also gains you ad­mis­sion to two con­cur­rent events, the Restora­tion Faire and Vin­tage Mer­can­tile, where you can pe­ruse art, crafts, an­tiques, and col­lectibles. Old River­side Foun­da­tion, (951) 683-2725, oldriver­side.org
