California-style Bungalow on Washington Blvd.

The pioneering work of Craftsman architects Greene & Greene in Pasadena made California a national model for bungalow designers. After World War I, Craftsman bungalows appeared in increasing numbers in cities and suburbs nationwide. Forest Hill was no exception. The Craftsman style often featured exposed, exaggerated rafters, natural stone chimneys, and cedar shingles on walls. It was an outgrowth of wistfulness for natural materials and artisanship as counters to the dominant, mass-produced ethos of the industrial age.
