Description
Image showing homes of the Kaiser Community Homes real estate development on Newhall Street at Park Avenue in Santa Clara and San Jose, California.
Kaiser Community Houses was a home-building project started after World War II by industrialist Henry J. Kaiser (1882-1967) and real estate developer Fritz Burns to address the burgeoning housing needs of postwar America. These suburban communities were built in three West Coast metropolitan areas: Los Angeles (North Hollywood and Panorama City in the San Fernando Valley), the San Francisco Bay Area, and Portland, Oregon.
