Notes
Survey number HABS CA-335
Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1955 subsequent work
Significance: The two back-to-back Chapels on the Veterans Administration grounds at Sawtelle (called Building #20 by VA) was designed by J. Lee Burton, Los Angeles architect, and built 1900. It is of the more exuberant shingle style, examples of which are rapidly passing away in cities. On the VA grounds, the fanciful building gives an historical depth and a continuity from shingle and siding through Spanish style into the thoughtful or mechanistic work of the present.
