Significance: Bayview reflects the adoption of "City Beautiful" planning ideals, first expressed in the District in the exemplary planning at Fairfield, by a major industrial entity -- TCI -- which utilized these concepts for its worker camps. As a "model" mining community Bayview is the most fully-realized example in the District and also reflects the prevailing standards for geographic separation of race. The original plan defines two geographically distinct sections -- one for white workers and one for black workers.
