Dating back to the early 20th century, Spanish-style architecture in the United States is typically referred to as Spanish Colonial Revival (SCR) architecture. The distinctive style stems from traditional Spanish architectural themes found in early American colonial settlements from Spain.
SCR was most popular in the U.S. from 1915-1940. Its popularity is largely attributed to the Panama-California Exposition in 1915 in San Diego, which most famously showcased the work of architect Bertram Goodhue and gave the style national acclaim. The style is mostly found in California, Florida, and some parts of Texas.
