History

The area was developed with single-family homes beginning in the mid-1950s. Developer Mackle Company and architect James Vensel laid out a community with 4 basic home types on lots averaging 75 x 100 ft. The homes were single-story concrete block structures with large windows and open-plan interiors. The exterior details were kept to a minimum, but certain models had stylish space-age touches. The "Lime Beach" model had staggered roof gables at one end lending a geometric flair to an otherwise rectangular box. The developers marketed the houses nationally, with ads in magazines such as Life.1 Low prices and small down payments enticed many retirees to purchase homes sight unseen via mail.
