The Christeele Acres Historic District, a residential subdivision built in 1943, is located between State Street and 500 East, and between 900 South and 1010 South in Orem, Utah (figure 1). The district consists of sixtytwo single-family dwellings and three duplexes on sixty-five rectangular lots. The buildings are all one-story brick structures, similar in scale and materials. Built during World War II for defense workers, the design and construction of the houses were tightly controlled. The floor plans and stylistic elements were based on the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) "minimum house" prototypes developed in the 1930s. The majority of the dwellings have four principal rooms and approximately 700 square feet of living space. While in general, World War ll-era houses were stylistically plain; the homes in Christeele Acres display an unusually high degree of variety for the time period. Not including the duplexes, there are eight distinct facade treatments and several minor variations in floor plans. In addition, the houses were well constructed and demonstrate a high quality of materials and workmanship. With few exceptions, the houses and yards have been maintained and are in good condition. Out of the sixty-three single-family residences, six have been altered and are considered non-contributing (figure 2). Two of the duplexes have been converted to commercial use, one of which has been altered beyond recognition and is considered non-contributing. Other than garages, there are no out-of-period structures within the district. National Register of Historic Places Continuation Sheet
