HISTORY

Back in 1861 the U.S. Marshall
rented office space in the Temple Block
at the corner(!)
of Main Street and Spring Street.
For the rest of the century the county
conducted most of it's business
from this building
elections were held there
and records were housed,
there was the District Court
(civil and criminal) and the County Court
(probate and appeals).

The same block was choosen later
to erect the new City Hall.
Today Civic Center is a complex
of office buildings and courthouses
for the administration
of America's largest county.

Federal and State buildings
are also located around L.A.'s City Hall.
Despite an early masterplan
the administrative core is a maze
of modern architecture and historic
structures divided by too much streets.
