Contrary to the original design, a tower with a biomorphic shingled skin, was never erected. Designed in 1888, about a year after Ernest Coxhead arrived from England, this was one of a group of Episcopalian churches he did throughout California. Commissions offered by the Episcopalian Church may have been the enticement given to Coxhead to come to California in the first place. This church cost $14,000.

This church was demolished to make way for a second for the same parish designed by the noted firm of Johnson, Kaufmann and Coate, Architects. The father of architect Reginald Johnson (1882-1952), Joseph Horsfall Johnson (1847-1928), served as the first Episcopal Bishop of Los Angeles from 1895-1928.

A parish house was added to All Saints Church #1 in 1911 by architects, Frohman and Martin;

Demolished 05/1923;
