Location:
524 E. Commonwealth Avenue
1929: Spanish Colonial Revival

Foster HouseThis charming Spanish style house is one of the most innovative examples of the type. A low gabled wing on the west has three attractive arched windows, one featuring stained glass showing a cowboy. Adjoining is a two-story section with a Monterey style balcony, while further east is a third section, distinguished by a round tower with conical roof having four, evenly-spaced double hung windows. East of the residence is a separate building containing three small bungalow units, built in the 1940s.

Albert Foster, a prominent cement and gravel contractor in the 1920s, constructed both the residence and three-unit apartment; the property has remained in his family ever since.
