Mission Revival

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Variant of American Colonial Revival which drew on the RC mission buildings in California popularized from the 1890s after the World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, IL (1893). It is characterized by arcades, balconies, courtyards, and towers, with plain rendered walls and pan-tile roofs, and an absence of ornament or frippery. A good example was the Union Pacific Railroad Station, Riverside, CA (1904), by Henry Charles Trost (1860–1933).
