Alhambra Health Center
This Monterey Revival building has ben part of the Alhambra community since 1930 and is listed on the California Register of Historic Places.
Advocate for adaptive re-use of the Alhambra Health Center to save this historic building and make it again a part of the Alhambra community.
The Alhambra Health Center was built in 1930 to serve the newly incorporated city’s growing population. It is an excellent example of Monterey Colonial Revival architecture, offering a window into the institutional development of the city. The Alhambra Health Center, owned by the City of Alhambra, has been closed for many years.
Despite community and city officials support for the building to be adaptive re-used in 2021, a recent plan would raze the historic building to build a new community center.

The Conservancy supports the Alhambra Preservation Group’s call for adaptive re-use so that this historic building can continue to serve its community.
Adaptive re-use can offer creative solutions to preserve the existing building, and create new opportunities to meet Alhrambra’s need for a community center.
