¡OLE! Cincinnati Home Style: Spanish Mission

You’ve probably recognized this one occasionally around town- I’m thinking of the pink home on Erie Ave, for example.

Spanish Mission homes are one and half or two and a half stories tall and square or rectangular in plan. They have stucco siding and red or orange tile roofs. They also feature arched an arched entry way, windows in various sizes and shapes, and wrought iron balconies.

In Cincinnati this style was built in the 1910s-1940a, the same time as Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, and Bungalow styles here. Those style were much more popular so you don’t see as many Spanish Missions here as you do out west, where entire cities were built in this style.
