For too many years, the exterior of Balboa Park’s historic Federal Building had languished neglected in a state of decay.
Not any more!
This is what I saw yesterday as I walked through the Palisades area of Balboa Park.
The Federal Building, built for the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition, has suddenly returned to life. What visitors to Balboa Park will now see is something more like the building’s original appearance.
This uniquely beautiful building will be the home of the Comic-Con Museum, which is scheduled to open this coming Thanksgiving weekend.
The repair and painting of the Federal Building’s exterior was made possible in large part by the Balboa Park Committee of 100.
