Because photos are found on many different pages, this listing should help you find the house or building you are looking for. This is a work in progress, so most streets are incomplete or not photographed yet. But, not only are there pictures of houses found on other pages of this site, but also many of neighboring houses that help define the character of its location.
The information for each includes, if known, the year built, Palo Alto Inventory of Historic Buildings category, recognition of being awarded a Preservation Award, inclusion on a tour (Holiday House Tour or self-guided walking tour), architect/builder and other unique information about the building.
The Palo Alto Style page is a source for locating examples of a specific architectural style.
If you have photos or information to add to our list, please email the firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of these pictures have been taken in the last six years, so anything older, or newer, would be greatly appreciated!
"Prof" denotes an unclassified Professorville home.
To help you locate where a particular address is, as a general rule, remember that streets run between Menlo Park to Mountain View (parallel to El Camino Real, Alma, Middlefield and Bayshore) and that avenues cross them, going from El Camino Real to the bay. Avenue house numbers 700 and higher are on the bay side of Middlefield Road. Also, numbering of houses changes from time to time due to subdiving lots or other considerations. So, if you are looking for a particular house, be sure to check numbers that may now be assigned to the one you are looking for.
"*" indicates that the owner accepted a centennial plaque.
