Architectural Style Guides

The City of Anaheim’s Architectural Style Guides are reference tools for owners and managers of historic buildings. Use the documents below to identify the features and materials that define your building’s historic character. In cases where you may wish to make changes to your building, the guides will help you determine compatible features and materials. 

Owners should consult with City Historic Preservation staff before making any changes to their historic properties.
