Spanish Mission

The first Spanish Mission style buildings were constructed in California between 1769-1823, the style later emerged at the end of the 19th century. The style was so popular that early buildings were remodeled with Spanish Mission elements. The Spanish Mission style is mainly recognized by the curvilinear-shaped gable walls or low parapets at the roof line. Spanish Mission style is known for arched openings at windows, entries, and arcades. Roofs that do have overhangs typically expose rafters at the eaves. Unlike the Spanish Colonial Revival, the Spanish Mission style has very little decorative detailing.
