Carrillo Adobe is the physical remains of a Spanish Colonial style L shaped adobe brick building associated with Dona Maria Carrillo, mother-in-law to Mexican General Mariano Vallejo, Commander of the Mexican forces north of the Presidio of San Francisco. Dona Carrillo was one of a small number of single women awarded a land grant. A prehistoric/protohistoric village site is situated within the same boundary and has revealed artifacts that date to historic times suggesting contemporaneous occupation.
Covina Bowl was constructed in 1955 with a major addition in 1962. The sprawling Googie style, Egyptian-themed bowling center was the prototype for hundreds of elaborate, multi-use entertainment/bowling centers that followed in the mid-1950s and into the 1960s in Southern California and across the United States. It was designed by the masters of bowling center architecture, Powers, Daly and DeRosa, who designed 72 bowling centers during their career.
Hamrick House, constructed in 1942, is an excellent example of the Spanish/Mediterranean Revival style within the pre-Modern Movement, and representative of master architects John Porter Clark and Albert Frey’s residential work in Palm Springs during that period. The house exemplifies the rational design approach associated with Clark and Frey’s work.
Hollywood Palladium, an excellent example of the Streamline Moderne architectural style, is significant for its association with Hollywood as a center for recreation and entertainment venues, particularly during the heyday of the Big Band era.
Lompoc Veterans Memorial Building is a Spanish Colonial Revival style veterans' hall built in 1935-1936, constructed to honor and support veterans of World War I and a prominent local example of its architectural style, designed by master architects Winsor Soule and John Frederick Murphy.
Miller Red Barn is an 1891 Western style barn with monitor roof, located in Gilroy, Santa Clara County. It was constructed for California cattle baron Henry Miller, and later utilized for fruit processing as Miller's new interest in horticulture transitioned his agricultural holdings and Santa Clara County became a major grower of fruit trees, especially prunes and apricots. The barn was later used for grape processing as the area transitioned to viticulture. The barn is now part of a city park, no longer agricultural but still located in a pastoral and rural setting.
Mitchell Camera/The Factory, located in West Hollywood, is a 1929 industrial building originally used by the Mitchell Camera Corporation to manufacture movie cameras that revolutionized the film industry. In 1974, the property opened as Studio One, a nightclub that became a cornerstone of southern California's LGBTQ community. This nightclub marked the transition from gay bars and clubs that were secretive and hidden, to avoid prosecution, to clubs that were public and popular. The Factory and other nightclubs based in this building attracted Hollywood celebrities and became a focal point for the growing LGBT community of West Hollywood.
Sears Roebuck & Co Amendment updates the existing National Register listed property, located in Los Angeles, to include the Mail Order Building as a contribution portion of this property. Added in two phases in 1959 and 1964, these additions increased the amount of office and warehouse space necessary to process and store merchandise during a period of commercial abundance, and amends the historic context to end in 1966 when the western headquarters of Sears relocated to Alhambra, California.
Upper Klamath River Stateline Archaeological District includes three pre-contact archaeological sites along the Upper Klamath River in the Cascade Mountains. The district represents the last four thousand years of aboriginal village occupation and associated activities on the benches and terraces of a major river, and has the potential to contribute to understanding of the pre-contact and proto-historic past of this portion of far western North America.
Walker House, on a rocky promontory overlooking Carmel Bay, is the only Usonian design completed by Frank Lloyd Wright in a coastal environment. Usonian design elements include the use of natural and local materials, the construction of the building based on a modular unit, and the prioritization of nature by the integration of interior and exterior spaces opening out to views of the surrounding landscape.
