Structures on the Historic Building Inventory

Under this classification scheme, a building is listed in one of four categories:

Category 1

An "Exceptional Building" of pre-eminent national or state importance. These buildings are meritorious works of the best architects, outstanding examples of a specific architectural style, or illustrate stylistic development of architecture in the United States. These buildings have had either now exterior modifications or such minor ones that the overall appearance of the building is in its original character.

Category 2

A "Major Building" of regional importance. These buildings are meritorious works of the best architects, outstanding examples of a specific architectural style, or illustrate stylistic development of architecture in the State or region. A major building may have some exterior modifications, but the original character is retained.

Category 3 or 4

A "Contributing Building" which is a good local example of an architectural style and relates to the character of a neighborhood grouping in scale, materials, proportion or other factors. A contributing building may have had extensive or permanent changes made to the original design, such as inappropriate additions, extensive removal of architectural details, or wooden facades resurfaced in asbestos or stucco.

In addition to being listed in the City's inventory, a building could also be listed on the California Register of Historical Resources or the National Register of Historic Places.

The City of Palo Alto also defines the concept of Historic and Architectural districts. These are areas possessing a distinct set of architectural and/or historic characteristics which are of value to the community. Two such areas have been designated: The Ramona Street Architectural District, a commercial area, and Professorville Historic District, a residential area.

Many of the homes on the old inventory are in Professorville. Some of the listed buildings have been demolished and others have had the category changed. This list is based on the 2004 revision as well as more recent changes.
