The plaque says, "The Mission Inn portrays the style and grace of a golden era, built by Frank Miller beginning in 1892, the Mission Inn's magnificent ambiance took a span of 66 years to be completed. Miller had the foresight to recognize that Riverside was becoming a major tourist attraction for wealthy easterners and Europeans seeking investment opportunities in the profitable citrus industry. More than anything, the Mission Inn is an artful and architectural tribute to the vision, eclecticism and eccentricity of Frank Miller; one that deserves to be experienced by all who happen upon it."
