13533 Bailey Street was built in 1895, is landmark #56 and has no name associated with it from the local designation process. This residence is significant as an excellent example of Queen Anne architectural style. Dating from the end of the nineteenth century, Victorian-era architecture, including Queen Anne, combines innovative construction techniques, such as balloon framing, manufactured nails, and standardized component parts shipped to the construction site by rail with a romanticized image of the picturesque.” Resulting houses constructed in this period incorporated asymmetrical plans that related to the interior flow of spaces and flamboyant exterior decoration.
This residence was built for Lindley Baldwin, who surveyed the site of Whittier prior to development, and his wife. The house was originally located on the north side of Hadley Street near the intersection with Friends Avenue from 1895 until 1979, when it was moved to its current location.
Local designation date is July 7, 2015.
