The building, designed by William D. Coates, Jr., state architect, and N. Ellery, state engineer, opened in 1912 and housed simple, agriculturally based displays of natural resources and industrial products from across the state.
Steps up an embankment lead to the State Exposition building in Exposition Park in Los Angeles. Arched windows and a columned entrance give a classical air to the single-story, brick building. An evergreen accents the corner and ivy, right, covers the lower half of the building.
