Regarding Anza House. This was a small simple pole and mud brick building that was typical for the Mexican era in California, in the 1820-1840 time period. It was "Americanized" and enlarged in the 1850s, which was typical of how traditional Mexican buildings were adapted by newer settlers from the eastern United States.
