National Register of Historic Places Statement of Significance:

Building/structure dates: 1890 initial construction Significance: This streetscape illustrates the charming variety of nineteenth century architectural forms and styles which developed during a time of prosperity when the coastside town of Pescadero served as a major produce and lumber center and summer resort for San Francisco. Ranging in date from the 1860's to 1890's, these four wooden structures remain as representative residential, civic, and religious examples of indigenous coastside architecture. The sparing but effective use of such ornamentation as pierced columns, scroll and fan brackets, cresting, shingling, assorted fenestration and balustrades indicates a clear understanding of the styles of the time and their creative application to local needs. Although altered somewhat in appearance and usage, they accurately reflect a village landscape of a significant period in the history of San Mateo county. Their builders were community leaders, many closely associated with California's earliest settlers.
