Westwood was built, I think, in 1942. Original prices were about $3500. My folks bought theirs in 1946 for $6500.
I was born and raised in Napa. Growing up in the 50s, there were only whites (except for one Latino family) in Westwood. Population was about 16,000.
Now, there are perhaps ten white families — the rest are Latinos.
“No part of said property or any buildings erected thereon shall be occupied or resided upon by any
peson not wholly of the Caucasian race. Domestic servants who are members of a race other than the
white or Caucasian race may live on or occupy the premises where their employer resides.”-from a restrictive convenant for Westwood, a housing
development built shortly after World War II
