The Nishiura Brothers built this Colonial Revival structure in 1910. Named after its first resident physician from Japan, Dr. Taisuka Kuwabara, the Kumamoto Kenjin-kai (a prefectural association) established the hospital to serve the Japanese community. In 1934 the Japanese Association, an Issei organization, purchased the building to use as a community center. After World War II it became the office of the Japanese American Citizen's League. Upon its designation as a historical landmark in 1983 and after its renovation, it was renamed the Issei Memorial Building in honor of the first generation of Japanese pioneers.
