Minerva Park Place is a narrow street lined with 16 Spanish Colonial Revival homes. Built by street resident and building contractor Frank Smith in 1925, the district's charm and small scale is reminiscent of courtyard housing, a development style common in Southern California in the early 20th century. Small in stature and modest in design, these single-family residences all share common features, such as flat stucco walls, flat roofs, arches, and accents of red roof tile. The design is also infused with the cubic geometry of famed architect Irving Gill.
