Course Description

Mission Revival Architecture includes red Terra-Cotta tile roofing, deep set windows, arches, and thick white stucco walls, and is uniquely Californian. Forty years after the annexation of Alta California by the U.S. from Mexico, the crumbling missions sparked a wave of romantic nostalgia for the Spanish past. Through the popular novel, “Ramona,” Helen Hunt Jackson helped to ignite the movement, and Ground Zero was the town of San Juan Capistrano, and its prominent citizen, Judge Richard Egan. Egan was an early member of the Landmarks Club, who joined forces with the club’s founder, Charles Lummis, a tireless advocate for a regional architecture. Linking the interests of both men was Helen Hunt Jackson, who worked with each of them, and was especially in-tune with the rights of indigenous peoples.
