Additional commentary.
1. Santa Cruz Historic Building Survey, Volume I, 1976, Page 97
“603 Mission, Stick-Eastlake, 1889, Daniel Damkroeger
A large, rambling Stick-Eastlake house with an octagon corner tower and pointed roof, and a well-proportioned, arched entrance porch on tapered columns. The best feature of this houses is its ironwork: the fence like the one around 210 Mission and 105 Sylvar, and the remarkable finial over the tower. The house was built for A.P. Swanton.

[Architectural Significance as an Example of its Style:] Good.”
