Significance: The triplex cottage at Poole Powerhouse (Lee Vining No. 1) was designed by G. Stanley Wilson who is recognized as one of California's master architects during the 1920 and 1930s. Wilson was a leading practitioner of the Spanish-Colonial revival style during the 1920s. He worked mainly in Southern California and designed several buildings in the Riverside area that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The triplex cottage is an excellent example of Wilson's wide design talents.
