13443 Bailey Street was built in 1903, is landmark #50 and has no name designated to it from the local designation process. This residence was home to C.A. Matteson, a woodcrafter, as listed in the 1920 Whittier City and Suburban Directory.
This residence is significant as an excellent example of Shingle architectural style, which along with Neoclassical and Foursquare, is a common Transitional style in southern California. Transitional styles represent the transition from the Victorian-era styles of the late 1800s to the Craftsman style of the early 1900s and often individual buildings will incorporate less elaborate elements of both styles.
Local designation date is July 7, 2015.
