This large Monterey-style house was designed for A Parley Johnson and his wife Geline "Gypsy" Johnson. They were citrus growers, and the house was originally surrounded by 50 acres of orange groves.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 as Casa de Parley Johnson; the house is currently used by the Assistance League of Downey.
