Building History: In May 1921, the Saint Paul's Episcopal church traded its property on Olive Street south of Fifth Street for two lots on Figueroa Street between Sixth Street and Orange Street. Presumably, this trade occurred with the developer of the Biltmore Hotel in Downtown, Los Angeles, CA. In addition, the church received $300,000 for the construction of a new facility. Architect Reginald Johnson's father, Joseph Horsfall Johnson, was the first Episcopal Bishop of Los Angeles serving from 1896-1928. Through this connection, Reginald received many commissions for Episcopalian churches in the 1920s.
