A newcomer to CA, Charles W. Dickey (1871-1942), who previously practiced in Hawaii, got the commission to design California's pavilion at the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition in 1905. Following a precedent set by the architect A. Page Brown (1859-1896) at Chicago's World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, Dickey created a "native" design in the Mission Revival Style.

Officials in charge of building California's Lewis and Clark Exposition Pavilion viewed the usage of the Mission Revival Style has critical for expressing the state's increasingly rich, indigenous and original cultural activities. They followed the lead of every board planning the California's major exhibition buildings since 1892 in specifying use of the Mission Revival Style.
