San Francisco architect Willis J. Polk designed the church c. 1901.

The 1st Church of Christ, Scientist #1, in San Jose, CA, was converted into a movie theatre, the Garden of Allah, in the 1950s; it seems to have operated into the 1970s before closing. The building has stood vacant for a number of years.
