Spanish Colonial homes became prevalent in California during the 1920s after the Panama-California Exposition, which took place in San Diego from 1915-1917. At this fair, temporary buildings were built using a blend of influences: Spanish Baroque, Spanish Colonial and Moorish Revival. The new homes based on these were termed Spanish Colonial Revival. They had classic Spanish features on the outside: white stucco walls, red terracotta roof tiles, wrought iron gates and window grilles and carved entry doors.
Features: Low-pitched red-tile roof, arched windows and doors, shaped parapet, asymmetrical facade, and stucco exterior.
