History

The Edward-Dean Museum was founded in 1958 in Cherry Valley by Edward Eberle and Dean Stout to showcase their collection of 16th to 19th century Asian and European furnishings and decorating arts.  In 1964 ownership and operational responsibility was transferred over to the County of Riverside.   In 1999, the Riverside Economic Development Agency assumed the primary role for the administration and operations of the Edward Dean Museum.  With 16 acres of stunning beauty and tranquility nestled in picturesque Cherry Valley, the Edward-Dean Museum is the ideal location.
