This residence at 13223 Broadway was built in 1918 and there is no name associated with it from the time of its local historic designation. 

It is significant as an excellent example of the Craftsman style, which evolved out of the Arts and Crafts Movement that began in England in the 1850s as a reaction to the industrial revolution and ornate styles of the time. That era espoused a return to the simplicity of handicrafts and the Craftsman architectural style stressed the natural beauty of wood, the relationship of a building to its surroundings, and the use of secondary materials such as brick and stone. In California the style was popularized by the Greene brothers who incorporated an Asian influence. The style was included in pattern books and, in addition to residences, there are also examples of Craftsman style bungalow courts, institutional buildings, and commercial buildings. Whittier boasts both modest, one-story Craftsman bungalows as well as larger two-story homes that feature more architectural detail.

Local designation date is July 7, 2015. It is listed as landmark #62. As of the date of local designation there was no Mills Act Agreement connected to this property.
