By the late 1880s, English visitors were frequent in Riverside and there were some English residents.
Following the collapse of the 1887 real estate boom, Matthew Gage, whose Gage Canal was nearing completion, went to England to attract investors and develop Arlington Heights as a citrus agricultural hub. Gage later formed and managed the Riverside Trust Company.
The canal was completed, and in 1890, the subdivision map for Arlington Heights was filed.
The focus of this region has always been agriculture and one can still see vast tracts of orange groves and crop fields.
The vast majority of homes here are owner-occupied, a reflection of higher average incomes and low-density development.
The California State Historic Park, a citrus preserve, offers a glimpse into the citrus history of the city. Plans for this area include the development of high-quality educational and tourist-oriented facilities.
Victoria Avenue, a city landmark, runs the length of the neighborhood. This two-lane divided roadway, which is heavily landscaped, recalls the City’s citrus past in plantings and decorative street signs.
