Building History

Maine-born Architect Alfred S. Bither (1824-1908) drew up proposed plans for a new Santa Ana City Hall in 01/1904. According to a contemporary news report: "The building will be modeled after the new municipal building just completed in Pasadena." (See Los Angeles Times, 01/03/1904, pt. V, p. 2 col. 1.)

Building Notes

This two-story, masonry building had a curious blend of Second Empire and Italianate features. Particularly French were the l'oeil de boeuf windows and the modified Mansard roof on one corner.
