Location: 123 E. Valencia Drive
1908: Colonial Revival
With its absolutely unique design, this house is one of the most remarkable from turn-of-the-century Fullerton. Two dramatic south-facing gables, one sheltering a recessed balcony behind an arched opening, contrast with the gable on the west-facing dormer. Other features include the shingling on the upper story, the porch’s unusual design with the pseudo-Doric columns, and the massive pieces of sandstone that sheath the ground level.
A second residence was constructed on the property in 1959, at the rear of the lot.
Very little is known about the original owner, John Fallert, a rancher who lived in the house until 1921.
