Location: 419 W. Commonwealth Avenue
1913: Shingle Style

Gallemore HouseThis outstanding two-story frame structure is an exceptional example of the Shingle style in Fullerton. Wood shingles on the second story replace the clapboard siding on the first story. Exposed rafters at both levels emphasize the Craftsman association with this style.

Little is known about the house except that it first appears on the maps of the Sandborn Insurance Company in 1917, and is not there in 1911. For a short time the house was owned by J. R. Gallemore, who was the president of the Fullerton News Publishing Company until 1922.
