1. The Arnold House Marker
Inscription.  Former Ventura County Supervisor Mathew H. Arnold built this home for his wife Eliza in 1906. The Colonial Revival details include Doric porch columns, curved brackets under boxed eaves and unique detailing in front of the cottage windows. Notable original features of the house are the interior Victorian decorative wood trims, parlor pocket doors, 10-foot high coved ceilings and many original light fixtures. The fireplace is reportedly said to be the work of a Greene and Greene artisan.
