The house was modernized and idealized, when the popularity of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture was at its highest; the adobe specialists, John Byers and Edla Muir, presided over the large-scale renovation that included the addition of a north wing and a second story over the original linear adobe structure; after this work, the adobe, designed for the oil and banking Gilmore family, did not retain an "authentic" 1830s aesthetic;
