The Riverside skyline has slowly been developing with the most recent addition; the ten-story dome topped Regency Tower at 10th and Orange. Though not the tallest, the building within the city that has the most floors is the Mount Rubidoux Manor, a senior residential apartment complex at 3993 10th Street. Built in 1971, the Mount Rubidoux Manor was built by the First Baptist Church of Riverside. The tallest building in the city is the Riverside County Administration Building at 4080 Lemon Street.


There are 19 buildings in Riverside that are 6 stories or higher, with three more planned for completion within the next few years. The proposed buildings are the nine story Riverside Community Hospital Building at 4445 Magnolia Avenue, the eight story Riverside Office Building at Main Street and University Avenue, and the six story Citrus Tower at Lime street and University Avenue.


Riverside has a rich history and as witness to its history, there are a number of historical landmarks within the city limits. The Mission Inn, located at 3649 Mission Inn Avenue, is by far the most famous and popular of the Riverside landmarks. The Mission Inn operates as a hotel and currently carries the name, the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa. Not only has the Mission Inn been accepted into the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a congressionally chartered organization that assists financially with historic preservation, but it is also on their list of Historic Hotels of America, a list of hotels more than 50 years old that have been maintained to retain their original design attributes.


The Mission Inn is located on the same site that was previously the historic Riverside Glenwood Hotel, built in 1876. It became the Mission Inn in 1902 when Frank Miller, son of the original Glenwood Inn owner, began building and expanding the property. Miller built the Mission Inn using a variety of architectural styles including Moorish Revival, Spanish Gothic, Mediterranean Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival and many others. He seemingly built without a cohesive plan, building some areas repeatedly and other areas to a smaller than normal scale. Fortunately, after several ownership changes and nearly $100 million in renovations over the years, the hotel is now a centerpiece that Riverside residents can admire.


The Inn has a long history of notable guests. Ronald and Nancy Reagan honeymooned at the Mission Inn, Richard and Pat Nixon were married in one its wedding chapels as was Bette Davis. Many Presidents have also been to the Mission Inn, the list includes John Fitzgerald Kennedy, William McKinley, Benjamin Harrison, Theodore Roosevelt, Gerald Ford, George W. Bush and William Howard Taft. There is also a long list of celebrity guests including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ginger Rogers, W.C. Fields, Raquel Welch and Drew Barrymore.


The Mission Inn Riverside has also been a filming location for several movies including Leonardo Dicaprio’s The Man in the Iron Mask, Walter Mathou and Jack Lemmon’s Buddy Buddy, Jim Kelly’s Black Samurai, and Clark Gable’s Idiot’s Delight. In addition to movies, the Mission Inn was used as Toby O’Dare’s home base in Anne Rice’s novel Angel Time, in Eddy Money’s Think I’m In Love music video, and in an episode of Sliders.


Other significant landmarks within the city include the Riverside County Historic Courthouse at 4050 Main Street, the Union Pacific Depot at 3751 Vine St, Benedict Castle at 1850 Benedict Avenue, and the Riverside Fox Theater at 3801 Mission Inn Avenue. Natural landmarks within the Riverside city limits include the La Sierra Hills, Mount Rubidoux, Quarry Hill, Victoria Hill and Box Springs Mountain.


Other interesting, if not historical, points of interest include the Concrete Railway Viaduct which when built in 1903 was the largest of its kind in the world, the Giant Lily Cup which marks the old location of the Lily Manufacturing Company, the newly refurbished Riverside Main Street Mall, and the Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree located at Arlington and Magnolia. The Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree in Riverside is one of only two original trees that were used to spawn the navel orange portion of the California citrus industry. The second tree was moved to the Mission Inn and personally planted by then President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903; the tree died in 1922.


The unique symbol that serves as the logo for the City of Riverside and is seen on the city flag, multiple buildings, artwork, and even bumper stickers on the cars of residents is called the Raincross. Frank Miller, the original owner of the Mission Inn, commissioned the Raincross. It was designed by using a combination of the symbolic bell that Father Junipero Serra used to call patrons to mass and a Native American cross to which Navajo Indians once used as the focus of their prayers for rain.
