Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2301
Building/structure dates: 1922 initial construction
Significance: The original 1922 building has distinctive characteristics in its column-and-drop slab framing system indicative of significant reinforced concrete technology for the 1921-32 period. The exterior design actively contributes to the architectural rendering of the engineering system. Its 30-year existence as the State Printing Office was followed by an equal period as the State Archives. It contributes historically to the government district surrounding the Capitol.
