4081 E Lancaster AVE – Lancaster

A small, brick commercial building with a flat roof and end piers, the design of this structure is virtually identical to 4075 E. Lancaster Avenue to the west. The building has a handsome central, stepped parapet with a corbelled cornice. The storefront windows have been partially filled in. Emmett and Horace Echols built this structure in 1930 using their own contracting firm, Echols Brothers, to construct it. The Echols sold the building to James Harrison in 1932. The first tenant was the Helpy Seify Store No. 8, and subsequent tenants included a grocer and a variety store. The building’s form and materials contribute to the surrounding 1920s commercial area.
