Built in 1912 as a home for single working women, the impressive building was damaged significantly in the Whittier earthquake of 1987. In order to preserve the building's original materials, woodwork, tiles and other materials were marked, removed for restoration, then puzzled back together. Currently listed as a Los Angeles Cultural Monument, the building was preserved and seismically strengthened to now provide 152 single room occupancy units for low-income adults.
