Riverside was founded in the early 1870s and is the birthplace of the California citrus industry as well as home of the Mission Inn, the largest Mission Revival Style building in the United States. It is also home to the Riverside National Cemetery.

Looking for a new home for my Riverside sign.
38 1/2 x 10 1/4. I copied the design from the old porcelain Riverside on the back of Mr Rubidoux.

I no longer have anywhere to hang it, but I would really like to have it put somewhere it can been seen.

If you have any ideas let me know.

I spent the morning visiting with Amanda Rios and the team at the National Grange HQ in Washington DC. When I got there Betsy had the Gavel available to show off that was given to them from Riverside, made from the Parent Navel tree that died after being transplanted in front of The Mission Inn
.
.
In recognition of the National Grange 150 year anniversary I presented them with a print of the The Riverside Navel Orange Tree as seen in Riverside today. They were excited to be able to display the painting in the Grange Lobby.
