Autumnal Tea at Riverside's incomparable Heritage House

If you joined us in May for the Heritage House's spring tea, then you know how truly spectacular their events are. We literally changed our schedule and postponed a group trip so we could attend their fall tea!

That said, please join us once again

Heritage House
8193 Magnolia Ave, Riverside

Here's how Wikipedia describes the historic home:

Heritage House (formerly called the Bettner House or Bettner-McDavid House) is an historic house museum in the Queen Anne Victorian style in Riverside, California. It is part of the Museum of Riverside and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 28, 1973.

The house was built in 1891-92 for Mrs. Catherine Bettner, widow of an early citrus pioneer. It was designed by architect John A. Walls of the Los Angeles firm Morgan and Walls. The two-story, 4,000 square foot home resides on Magnolia Avenue, which was a prominent thoroughfare at the time of the house's construction.

Heritage House is restored to reflect the design and lifestyle of wealthy turn-of-the-century Riverside. In addition to its Queen Anne design, it includes Moorish, Georgian and Chinese elements.

Whimsicalidocious, the Ocademy's genteel arts nonprofit, has purchased 2 tables at the event, seating a total of 12 of our patrons, so seats will be at a premium. The cost is $50, on top of which there are PayPal fees. 

If you'd like us to cover the PayPal fees for you, pay $50.

If you'd like to cover the PayPal fees yourself, please pay $52.50. (Thank you!) 

If you'd like to make a donation to the historic house museum in addition to the tea and fees, please pay $75. The choice is yours xo
