Magnolia Center

Magnolia Center is one of the original neighborhoods in the City of Riverside.

It boasts single-family homes, mostly built between the late 1800s and the mid-1900s. Many properties in this area bear historical significance.

The Riverside Plaza, once the economic hub of the city, has undergone recent renovations and has transformed from an aging commercial center to a vibrant and busy walk-and-shop destination.

New “undercrossings” at several key intersections have also relieved the logjam traffic stoppages that frequently occurred at the many railroad crossings in this area. Traffic now moves much more swiftly and efficiently.

 

Neighborhood Info

About Magnolia Center Riverside, California:

Magnolia Center has been a part of the City of Riverside since its founding.

This neighborhood was the home of State Sen. Henry L. Streeter, who sponsored legislation that led to the creation of Riverside County in 1893. His house still stands at 5211 Central Ave. Its history and age are reflected in the design of its neighbors.

Newer subdivisions have given the neighborhood an interesting mix of modern and traditional. This neighborhood boomed in the decade after World War II.

The Riverside Plaza, Riverside’s first large commercial center, was once the city’s economic hub. Development of nearby malls and commerce centers reduced the Plaza’s economic status, but the area still provides economic opportunities, and future plan are ongoing.

The residential neighborhoods tend to be laid out in a more traditional grid. Magnolia Center is built upon relatively flat land, but the eastern portion begins to rise up, marking the foot of the Victoria Hills.
