Historic Lincoln Park

Pomona's Lincoln Park neighborhood offers buyers seeking classic vintage homes an affordable alternative for early 20th century Craftsman homes, California bungalows and Prairie, Tudor and Colonial Revival styles, as well as a healthy mix of Spanish and Victorian houses.

The Lincoln Park enclave, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is home to about 900 of Pomona's more than 2,700 buildings of historic significance.

Many houses in the neighborhood feature Batchelder tile fireplaces, built-ins, quarter-sawed oak floors and box-beamed ceilings. Although some are fixer-uppers awaiting industrious do-it-yourselfers to restore them to past glory, others are in prime…

Mid Century Modern

If houses reflect the times they were designed, midcentury modern is the architecture of ideas, created by those who believed the forward-looking style could be a vehicle for social change to create a better society. Characterized by flat planes, large glass windows and open space, these homes -- built from 1945 to the 1980s -- featured simplicity and an integration with nature, encouraging residents to explore the world in new ways.

Lincoln Park - Vintage Cottages

The Cottage style house plan is synonymous with "cozy" but does not skimp on living space. These smaller homes offer a "lived-in" ambiance, creating a comfort level that can be lacking in larger, less-personalized homes. Cottage house plans do not adhere to any specific architectural style, but my exhibit the influence of Country, Craftsman, Victorian, and European country design. The common denominators of all Cottage house plans are a modest footprint and an informal feel.

Lincoln Park - Craftsman Homes

Craftsman homes were primarily inspired by the work of two architect brothers — Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene — who worked together in Pasadena, California, at the turn of the 20th century. The Greene brothers were influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement (a reaction against the Industrial Revolution in an effort to promote the work of craftsmen and the handmade over the machine made), as well as by Oriental wooden architecture.

Lincoln Park - Spanish Revival

Spanish Revival is an extremely eclectic style. Many Mediterranean touches are combined to create an exotic, but harmonious appearance. Influences include Spanish Baroque, Moorish, and Gothic elements. Tile roofs and stucco exteriors are characteristic with half rounded doors and windows. Elaborate tile work, applied relief ornamentation, and wrought iron grill-work is used to create frames around doorways and windows, and is used widely as decorative accents throughout the house. Towers and columns are often seen as are balustrades, cantilevered balconies, covered porches, and arcaded walkways. Front entrances were often highly ornamented and many were balanced by a commanding tripl…

Mediterranean Revival Design

Mediterranean architecture in North America, which was extremely popular from 1918 to 1940, echoed the haciendas in the Spanish New World with their red tile roofs, arches and plaster made rough to resemble plastered adobe. Many homes in California and Florida, states which have Spanish histories, were built in this style.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Hollywood movies featured romantic Mediterranean sets, and celebrity magazines showed stars living in Spanish Colonial, Tudor or small castle-like houses, creating the peak period for construction of Mediterranean homes.
