Jay Dayton Smith House
1931–1932, Warner and Nordstrom. 624 S. 6th St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

The Spanish Colonial Revival style of this one-story stuccoed house is common in this district. The building is modest in size and ornamentation but typifies the local interpretation of this style. The asymmetrical form incorporates a variety of masses, with two front-gabled roof sections at the ends flanking a round tower and a shed-roofed porch covering the entry. Large arched windows, one rounded and one pointed, pierce the gable ends. Simple ornamentation includes roof-beam ends jutting below the narrow eaves, decorative vents in the tower, and a wrought iron grill over the tower window.
