This Mission, Spanish Revival building was designed by our firm during the time of  Starks and Flanders, Architects and Engineers. The building, located across the street from the state capitol, is constructed with stucco and topped with a low-pitched red tile roof. One of the distinctive elements is a two and half story tower at the junction of the buildings two wings. On the first floor landing is multi-colored tile mosaic of a blue anchor, the insignia of the California Fruit Exchange. The building opened its doors in 1932 and was dedicated to founder and former company president George H. Cutter. The California Fruit Exchange occupied the building until 1966 when they moved to a new building in North Sacramento. Since that time, the building has been used by state agencies.
