This home has also been chosen to be part of the Mills Act, which is legislation that provides property tax relief to owners of historic properties for the purpose of assisting in the expense of restoration and maintenance. To qualify, a historic property must be listed on a national, state, county, or city register (see paragraph below), and this is the single most important economic incentive program available in California for owner occupied historic single-family homes.
This home is also Riverside Structure of Merit #753, which designates the house as an architectural contribution to the City of Riverside. This designation places no additional burdens or restrictions upon the property owner, though it does facilitate relocation of the structure if it is ever threatened with demolition.
