1919 - 1988

Designed by architect Harvey Lochridge for Fred Markwell in 1914, but not constructred until 1919, the Jergins Building was originally named after Markwell. Built in the Beaux-Arts style, the six story structure contained a theater and offices. In 1929, the A. T. Jergins Oil Company added three floors and a penthouse, also designed by Lochridge, and renamed it the Jergins Trust Building. Despite efforts to preserve it, the Jergins Trust Building was demolished in 1988.

These historic decorative elements from the Jergins Trust Building have been preserved, repurposed, and installed through a generous grant from the Long Beach Navy Memorial Heritage Association.
