Significance: The building is one of two major packing houses constructed in response to the rapid expansion of the Escondido Valley citrus industry. It was designed by W.W.

When originally constructed, the building was touted as being the most up-to-date in the California citrus packing industry and as having the widest Arch-Rib trussless roof ever installed.
