Location: 763 N. Euclid Street
1924: Spanish Colonial Revival
This large, two-story house has a distinctive appearance, given its melding of Spanish Colonial architecture with a form and massing of the Pueblo style. Smooth stucco walls are punctuated with a random placement of windows, some of which are deeply recessed. While the windows and arched door are characteristically Spanish Colonial, the bold, block-like form, the use of balconies, the prominent chimney, and the flat roof reflect the Pueblo style. The Pueblo style had its height of popularity in the 1920s, but this architecture is rare to the area, and the residence is unique in Fullerton.
Built in 1923, the house was one of the few to be located north of Chapman Avenue on Euclid Street (then Nicolas Drive) prior to 1945, when this street did not extend beyond what is now Valley View Drive. The original owner, Clinton H. Smith, was a long-time citrus rancher in the Placentia area. The Smith family initially resided in a small structure that is still standing at the rear of the lot, now situated behind the two-story residence.
