The Pueblo Style [^†] is frequently found in Arizona, New Mexico and California and to a lesser degree in Florida. Like the Mission Style, its origins are derived from the vernacular architecture of the American Southwest. Based on the adobe dwellings (pueblos) of the American Indians of Arizona and New Mexico, the style is simple and features rough hewn logs and texture to resemble dried mud brick. In area examples, this effect is acheived with stucco. While used extensively in early development in Miami Springs, Hollywood has a single example of this style from the period of significance. The popularity of the style in South Florida quickly faded after the real estate collapse of 1926. The Pueblo Style has rough hewn roof beams and rounded corners on the stucco walls.
