With its many variations, Spanish Revival started to appear in San Diego around the time of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. Larger homes may have been designed by architects that used traditional Spanish designs while small homes built in the 1920's often made use of simple Craftsman style interior moldings.

These homes are scattered throughout the older neighborhoods, while in some areas, such as Kensington, the homes are almost exclusively of this style.
