Originally, an apartment house occupied this site; A classical facade was added to this structure in the 1920s, probably for a bank; Bank of America remodeled the building in 1935.


Three upper stories were demolished in 1935, possibly due to seismic damage suffered during the Long Beach Earthquake of 03/10/1933.
