The 12.3 acre Crystal Cove Historic District is a well-preserved example of Southern California vernacular beach architecture and terrain. The District retains the scale and ambiance of a 1930’s beach resort. The site was always a favorite spot of the owners James Irvine II and James Irvine III, who spent much time enjoying the beach setting. They generously allowed employees and friends to build small shelters and cottages along the beach and against the bluffs. It became a tradition for many families who had enjoyed the Cove since the 1920’s to return to this favored place each summer. The Irvine Family had been generous with permission for the construction of the cottages that still line the beach today, virtually unchanged. In the late 1930’s, as the cottage owners made improvements and lengthened their stay, the Irvine Family decided that those with cottages must make a choice. They were invited to either move their cottages elsewhere or to relinquish ownership and lease their cottages from The Irvine Company. In 1979, the State of California purchased the land from The Irvine Company to form a state park named after Crystal Cove.
