Day House, Riverside

When I drove to Riverside for the Squeeze concert at the Fox, I looked for free parking on the street a couple of blocks north of the theater. I found a curbside spot in a neighborhood of tidy older homes with vintage street lamps. And then spotted a marker in front of a house.

This is the Ernest Day House, built in 1895 at 325 8th St. and relocated to 3894 4th St. in 1911, where it’s resided for 110 years. It’s described as a “vernacular Victorian” and is Cultural Landmark No. 101. I hadn’t even gone to the concert yet and already I was feeling more cultured.
