Cheneweth House

JSDH article page 183
The modern Cheneweth house built in 1958 stood in contrast to the nearby Victorian Bon-Aire house. Thomas Swayne built the Bon Aire at 2216 East 5th St. in 1891, but the home burned down in the 1960s, and its style was overshadowed by modern architecture. James Cheneweth started the Valley View Sanitarium in 1945, and represented the growth of a modern National City.
