Building History

The prestigious San Francisco architectural firm of Bliss and Faville produced the design for the Palace of Education and Social Economy.

Building Notes

This Spanish Colonial Revival Style building had a front entrance covered by an arched pediment supported by solomonic columns.

The Arequipa Sanitorium Pottery of Fairfax, CA, exhibited its wares at the Palace of Education and Social Economy in 1915.

A postcard by the Souvenir Guide Publishing Company of San Francisco stated of this building: "The Palace of Education was designed by W.B. Faville, of San Francisco, and is of composite Byzantine and Spanish Renaissance style. It cost $304,263. The Fine Arts Lagoon seems more attractice with each visit. It has som many moods that unless seen at all times of the day, and particularly at night under the illuminations, much is missed."
