Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2074
Building/structure dates: 1917 initial construction
Significance: To present knowledge the Lynwood depot is the only remaining Pacific Electric passenger station. It has survived the devastating Long Beach earthquake of 1933, neglect and vandalism and stands evidence of a part of greater Los Angeles and Southern California heritage. The style of the Lynwood Station, showing the influence of California architects Bernard Maybeck and Greene and Greene, is unique in that it apparently was never repeated in the Pacific Electric System.
