Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2793
Building/structure dates: 1897 initial construction
Significance: Designed by the Los Angeles architectural firm of Dennis & Farwell, the Brunswig Annex (and attached Vickrey-Brunswig Building) represents the rapid transformation of Los Angeles in the last quarter of the 19th century from an agricultural outpost during the Spanish and Mexican eras to a populous, commercialized city with increasing regional importance. Constructed in 1897 as the surrounding Plaza district shed its rural, colonial character and became the city's first central business district, the Brunswig Annex reflects the continuous and evolving use of the 1825 site of the Spanish settlement of El Pueblo de Los Angeles, characterized as "the living composite story of Los Angeles from Indian times prior to 1781 through Spanish, Mexican and American periods. The Brunswig Annex was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1981 as contributor to the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historic Park, a district listed in the National Register in 1972.
