Notes
Survey number HAER CA-310-Q
Building/structure dates: 1940 initial construction
Significance: The Northwest Corner of Building 1 is of unknown significance. However, Building 1, as a whole, is the administrative and historical "heart" of the NASA Industrial Plant at Downey. Beneath Building 1's roof there are approximately 22 separate buildings, some of which are part of the original plant constructed in 1929, and all of which contribute to the plant's 70-year history of design, production, and testing for the aircraft/aerospace industry. The Northwest Corner of Building 1 is all that is being documented in this report.
