Ramona

Ramona features a mix of traditional Americana and continued modern growth.

The area is among the most populous region in the city, with traditional and modern street layouts and housing. Residential areas feature large blocks with small streets that weave their way into the interiors. Nearly a third of the homes here were built in the 1950s, and the majority was completed in the 1960s.

The growing California Baptist University has a large student population, and the surrounding area caters to their housing needs, including many apartment communities.

Magnolia Avenue crosses the eastern half of this neighborhood and contributes to its character.

 

 

Neighborhood Info

About Ramona Riverside, California:

The Ramona neighborhood boasts two distinct historical landmarks: Heritage House and the Sherman Institute Protestant Chapel.

Heritage House is a stunning example of late Victorian architecture. Built in 1891, it was the home of Mrs. James Bettner, widow of an early citrus grower and city founder. The home was purchased by the Riverside Museum Associates for restoration in 1969 and is today a museum reflecting a late 19th century orange grower's life.

The Sherman Institute Protestant Chapel building was dedicated in 1925. The Home Missions Council of North America and Protestant churches throughout Southern California contributed $32,000 for construction of the chapel at the Sherman Institute. Sherman students provided all the labor.

When Riverside was founded, the Ramona area was part of the western edge of town. The neighborhood developed into one of the central areas in the city and is now the most populous.
