Spanish Eclectic – popular 1915-1940
The Spanish Eclectic style is also known as Spanish Colonial and/or Spanish Colonial Revival
With the Panama-California Exposition held in 1915, Spanish Colonial architecture received wider attention. The post-1915 examples strayed from the previous Mission interpretations by emphasizing the richness of Spanish precedents in Latin America. Spanish Eclectic style houses usually have low-pitched roofs with little or no eave overhang and are clad with terra cotta or clay tile. Often there are one or more prominent arches, placed above a door or principal window, with a stucco wall surface. High-style examples normally have elaborate chimney tops and balconies with wood or iron railings.
