Legend has it that the tiny house at 2520 2nd Street is Santa Monica’s last shotgun house. A shotgun house, though some argue about it’s origin, is a house built on a lot no more than about 30 feet wide, with the rooms lined up, front to back.
- What is thought to be the last shotgun house in Santa Monica has been preserved.
- The house is now open as a resource center for preservationists.
- The shotgun style dates back to the mid 19th century.
