Listed as Historic Cultural Monument #404 by the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission as the Los Angeles Railway Huron Substation, the building was built in 1906 from a design by engineer Edward S. Cobb. It is the second oldest surviving substation in the city which housed equipment to convert high-voltage electricity supplied by the Edison Company to the 600 volts current used by the L.A. Railways “Yellow Cars,” providing urban transportation for many years.

Century old brick walls, arched windows and steel beams give one the sense of a long lost, ancient Los Angeles. The landscaped garden with its industrial deco fountain is unfettered by trend, and propels one into a European sense of intimacy
