This old house

Old Downey house

There's an old house buried behind the businesses near downtown Downey. With its steeply pitched roof and myriad of angles and lines, it's very intriguing.

Old Downey houseMore intriguing is that I can't find out anything about it, including its actual age. What surrounded this house before it got closed in by fences and businesses?

Any history on this house, anyone?

You can click the location link at the bottom of the post to see the location of the house.


  1. The county records on the land say it was built in 1930, if I'm looking at the correct lot. (Based on the sat photo, I'm pretty sure I've got the right property)

  2. Interesting architecture. Knock on the door one day. You might get a guided tour.
