Dacy Fazio Carriage House

Dacy Fazio House 557 E. Thompson Boulevard
Orville A. Wadleigh, an early Ventura County rancher and City Trustee in 1918-1919,
had this house built for his daughter Dacy Fazio in 1910. Dacy was married to Ben
Fazio, owner and operator of the Fazio-Newby grocery store on Main Street. The
house is a typical Craftsman Bungalow, but the property includes a carriage
house/barn, which is significant as the only remaining example of a carriage house in
the old downtown. The style and construction of the structure indicate that it may be
older than the house itself. This is an 8" x 10" oil painting. I have altered the painting since this phase and will post it soon.
