This Ebell Club chapter formed in 1906, and held its first meetings at Wood's Hall in Highland Park. It raised $10,000 and commissioned architect Sumner P. Hunt, of the Los Angeles firm of Hunt and Burns, to design a new clubhouse. Burns's wife was involved in the Ebell Club, and he designed at least two other Ebell Clubhouses in Southern CA. The building contractor was Frederick C. Coryell. (See Ebell Club Highland Park Notice, Southwest Contractor and Manufacturer, 08/31/1912, p. 33, col. 1.) The building's cornerstone was set in late 11/1912. (See "Cornerstone of Ebell laid," Highland Park Herald, 11/23/1912, p. 1.)
