National Register of Historic Places in Ventura County
The Ebell Club of Santa Paula is an outstanding example of the shingled Craftsman style designed in 1917 by the noted Los Angeles architectural firm of Hunt and Burns. The building is one of three Craftsman buildings in Santa Paula designed by Hunt and Burns. The other two are the Glen Tavern and the Alan McKevett house.
The picturesque English landscape garden was laid out by Hunt and Burns to provide a setting for the clubhouse and to complement the architecture. It is the only example of its type in Santa Paula where a Craftsman era institutional building was designed with a complementary landscape plan.
The Ebell Club is the only women's clubhouse in Santa paula and is one of the few unaltered historic clubhouses in Ventura County.
The present trees and shrubs in Ebell Park are part of the original landscape plan drawn by architects Sumner Hunt and Silas R. Burns.
