Significance: Residence "A" is important mainly as one of two surviving structures on Olive Hill (Barnsdall Park) which represent the first work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the Los Angeles region. It was completed in 1920. This studio-residence was commissioned by the original owner, Aline Barnsdall, as a part of a dream of a great art center for Los Angeles. Although a lesser work of the great American architect, it remains, nevertheless, a landmark of the rapidly vanishing heritage of early modern architecture in Southern California. In February of 1965, the Southern California Chapter, AIA, submitted Residence "A" (together with Hollyhock House nearby) to the Cultural Heritage Board of Los Angeles as an historic-cultural monument of the City. The submission was adopted, at this time, with the inclusion of the entire surrounding grounds (Barndsall Park) as well.
