Donnell Residence - Oceanside, CA, USA

This Spanish Revival style house was built circa 1928.  It was the home of a physician, Dr. James B. Donnell, his wife Lucy and their two children, James K. and Mary Jane.  Dr. Donnell passed away in 1932.  In 1940 Lucy and daughter Mary Jane were still living there, while son James was living in Inglewood employed as a Toolmaker in the aircraft industry.  Mrs. Donnell passed away in 1941.

I remember trick-or-treating at this house once in the late 1950s or very early 1960s and receiving a large-size Hershey Bar from the elderly woman who lived there at that time.

Located at 303 South Clementine Street.
