Properties nominated to the National Register of Historic Places

The following properties were reviewed at the February 2, 2024 SHRC meeting in Sacramento, Sacramento County.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in California Amended Multiple Property Documentation Form adds to the original cover documentation that was approved by the Keeper of the National Register in 2020. The original submittal documented three historic contexts—Migration and Community Formation, Community Serving Organizations, and Religion and Spirituality—for eight groups: Native Hawaiian, Chinese American, Japanese American, Korean American, Filipina/o American, Chamorro, South Asian American, and Samoan, with an 1850 to 1970 period of significance. The Amended MPDF extends the period of significance to 1995, adds two historic contexts—Business, Industry, and Labor and Activism, Civic Engagement, and Political Participation—and a ninth group, Vietnamese American.

PHOTO Bel Vista House at 1150 N. Calle Rolph  was constructed in 1946 in the International Style as one of the fifteen identical homes constructed in the Bel Vista tract of Palm Springs. Architect Albert Frey placed each home differently on its lot to differentiate and distinguish the singular design of the fifteen identical houses in the tract from each other. Only three remain intact. The house embodies the distinctive characteristics of residential architecture associated with the modern movement as interpreted by Frey for the desert environment of the Coachella Valley and meets the registration requirements ofThe Architecture of Albert Frey Multiple Property Submission. To distinguish the house from the nearby National Register-listed Bel Vista House, this property is identified by the addition of its address.

PHOTO Winona Boulevard Mid-Century Modern Historic District is an intact and cohesive collection of mid-twentieth century multi-family buildings on both sides of Winona Boulevard between Hollywood Boulevard and Franklin Avenue in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles. The 1950 to 1964 period of significance encompasses a period of change and new construction in the area, as early-twentieth century building stock was demolished to make way for denser residential development that embraced Modernism.

 Los Feliz Boulevard Courtyard Apartments Historic District is composed almost entirely of multi-family residences in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, just south of Griffith Park. The district was developed as multiple tracts over the span of a few decades. Most of the resources take the courtyard apartment form, with represented styles including Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, Mission/Spanish Colonial Revival, Mediterranean Revival, French Renaissance, Art Deco, and four locally recognized styles of the Modern Movement: Mid-Century Modern, Late Moderne, Hollywood Regency, and Minimal Traditional.

PHOTO Talmadge Park Estates Historic District, composed of single-family buildings and decorative wrought iron entry gates, is located in the Mid-City neighborhood of San Diego, northeast of downtown. The district represents an evolution of San Diego’s suburban development in the wake of the Great Depression, into the incorporation of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) small/minimum house principles for neighborhood planning, and through World War II housing shortage and construction restrictions. Architectural styles include Spanish Colonial Revival; the small Ranch, which originated in this neighborhood; and Minimal Traditional.

PHOTO Blair, Luther and Adah, House is a large two-story wood-framed building whose design was influenced by the Queen Anne and Eastlake styles. Built in 1887, the house was moved in 1927. When Blair House was slated for demolition in 1993, town historian Steve Baker had it moved again to its location adjacent to his family home, the John F. and Julia Brossart House. Both moves, within Monrovia city limits in Los Angeles County, were carefully executed, preserving original architectural details on the exterior and the interior. Original design features include heavy turned posts with decorative brackets, stained glass doors and transoms, porches, wood windows, skirting with stylized crane cutouts, and interior moldings and ornamentation.

 

PHOTO Brossart, John F. and Julia, House is a large two-story frame house built in 1887, in a simple late nineteenth century Victorian style with Queen Anne influences. The house was moved twice between 1900 and 1909, both times only a short distance away within Monrovia city boundaries. Each move was carefully executed, preserving original architectural details including windows, doors, decorative wood shingles, built-in cabinet, and mantelpiece. In 1914, a Craftsman-inspired addition at the back of the house added a new kitchen and service areas on the first floor and a bedroom above.

 

PHOTO Mariposa Street Bridge is a 1939 steel suspension bridge across the Los Angeles River, linking the equestrian neighborhoods of the Burbank and Glendale Ranchos to the north wi Los Angeles Equestrian Center and Griffith Park equestrian trails to the south, designed to allow horses and riders to cross the river in this unique 20th century commercial-equestrian area.

 

PHOTO Sacramento Shops Historic District is a 14 acre complex of railroad shops located north of downtown Sacramento, including eight 19th century industrial buildings associated with Central Pacific Railroad's (later Southern Pacific Railroad) locomotive and car manufacturing facility and maintenance shops. 

  

PHOTO The Last Resort is a district of handmade buildings and structures that combine ecological design and art environment, located in a forested area of west Marin County's San Geronimo Valley, created by David Hoffman, influenced by his interest in sustainable architecture and nine years spent traveling, principally in Asia.
