Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
This large brick church was constructed in the late 1880s. After serving as Simpson Methodist Episcopal Church and Simpson Auditorium for years, it became the Third Church of Christ, Scientist in the early 1910s. The Christian Science Reading Room remains on the site, but the large church building was demolished after it suffered severe damage as a result of the 1971 San Fernando earthquake.
Exterior view of Third Church of Christ, Scientist, located at 734 S. Hope Street, captured a few years after it was remodeled in 1911.
