The 10 story Patriotic Hall in downtown Los Angeles opened its doors to the public 1926. Constructed in support of the Grand Army of the Republic, the building served veterans of the Indian Wars, Spanish American War, and World War I. It serves as the home of the Los Angeles County Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. The Bob Hope Patriotic Hall houses military memorabilia artifacts and important documents ranging from the American Revolution to the current Middle East Conflict.
The County of Los Angeles raised money to rehabilitate the building in 2006. The building underwent a complete mechanical systems upgrade, code upgrades and accessibility improvements. In addition, improvements were made to allow for meeting and conference space. Bob Hope Patriotic Hall reopened on Veterans Day in 2013 and serves Military and Veteran Affairs and Mental Health departments for the County of Los Angeles.
Spectra Company completed the façade rehabilitation, decorative painting and murals, architectural woodwork, and much more. This project received the Los Angeles Conservancy Preservation Award in 2014.
