The Mission style emanated from California at the end of the 19th century, based on the design of the old Catholic missions. Like the Spanish Colonial style, it relies upon red tile roofs, stucco wall surfaces, and simple geometric forms. Curvilinear gables, round arches, and arcades are also key features of the style. Unlike the Spanish Colonial style, Mission style uses little surface ornamentation.
