1932, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. 700 Park St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

One of four houses that the Bureau of Reclamation built for its department heads, this two-story brick dwelling stands on a prominent curved hillside lot. The four-bedroom house—one of the largest in town when it was built—has a cantilevered balcony and carved detailing of the porch eaves and exposed deck beams. Steel casement windows on the first floor have paneled wood shutters. The building displays an eclectic mix of styles, generally with Spanish references.
