532 W. Jacaranda Place
1928: Colonial Revival

Mennes HouseThis house is one of the few good examples of the Colonial Revival style in Fullerton. Typical of the style, the two-story house features a balanced placement of windows trimmed with shutters, the use of horizontal siding, and a centrally located portico entry defined by sets of two columns supporting a pedimented gable. The house is virtually unaltered from its original construction, as is the detached garage at the rear of the property.

This was the only two-story structure constructed in a neighborhood of 1920s California bungalows and modest Spanish Colonial Revival houses. Its contrasting architecture has always provided a strong landmark for the Jacaranda-Malvern area. Little is known about the original owner, Joseph Mennes, a local real estate businessman who lived in the house for only a couple of years after its construction in 1929.
