13464 Bailey Street

13464 Bailey Street was built in 1895, is landmark #54 and has no name associated with it from the local designation process. This residence was home to Mrs. Thania Z. Cooper, as listed in the 1920-21 Whittier City Directory. 


This residence is significant as an excellent example of Folk Victorian architectural style. Dating from the end of the nineteenth century, Victorian-era architecture combines innovative construction techniques, such as balloon framing, manufactured nails, and standardized component parts shipped to the construction site by rail. Resulting houses constructed in this period incorporated asymmetrical plans that related to the interior flow of spaces and flamboyant decoration.


Local designation date is July 7, 2015.
