History of the Center

Built for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition as the Palace of Electricity and Varied Industries, the architecture reflects a close relationship between ancient Maya and 20th century ornamentation and its progression. During World War II the gym was used by the U.S. Navy. It was renovated in 1947.
