Mission Furniture Manufacturing

Cecilio Acevedo opened Mission Furniture on the main commercial corridor of unincorporated East Los Angeles in 1971. This family-operated business has manufactured quality custom upholstered furniture by skilled craftsman since its inception. 

All upholstery is handcrafted on the premises and all frames are made of solid wood. Over the years, the owners expanded the business and began to sell mattresses, bedrooms, dining rooms, appliances, and more.

The building that houses Mission Furniture was constructed in 1926 in the Moderne style. It has been altered over time and now features a Spanish Colonial Revival style. From 1969 to 1970, the building was home to El Barrio Free Clinic, established by the Brown Berets and run by active members of the organization.

The clinic was considered the most successful implementation of the Brown Berets’ community service mission, representing the social agenda that differentiated Chicano Moratorium Committee from other antiwar efforts and created a legacy in the community beyond the antiwar protest era.
