J. A. Day House 759 E. Poll Street

Built 1889, Designated April 25, 1988

J. A. Day House

Built in 1889 by prominent local grocer and Saticoy area rancher J.A. Day, this Victorian home features many elements of the “stickstyle. The gabled walls feature ornamentalstick work at their intersection with the roof. The steeply pitched gabled roofs feature similar decorative stick work at their apex.  The clapboard siding is terminated at the corners with column-like detailed corner boards featuring base and capital-style trim.  The entry imitates a tower by continuing through the second floor roof and terminating with its own gable roof.  Other Victorian elements include the balusters and frieze, decorative pediments over the windows, and stained glass over the door. The J.A. Day home reinforces the historical feeling of the nearby Selwyn Shaw Historic District.
