Building History

The Currier Building was erected for Senator A.T. Currier of Spadra, CA. The firm of Burton and Parkinson designed the building.

Building Notes

In 1896-1897, the architect John Parkinson (1861-1935) maintained his offices in the Currier Building. The firm that designed the building, Burton and Parkinson, dissolved the previous year.

The architectural tandem of Dennis and Farwell occupied Room #414 of the Currier Building in 1897. (See Maxwell's Los Angeles, California, City Directory, 1897, p. 280.)


After a 01/13/1968 fire gutted the Currier Building's upper floors, it was removed a few months later. The fire's loss was valued at $100,000.
