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
