First National Bank Building @ 494 E. Main St. in Ventura

Built in 1926 by architect H. H. Winner, the four story building on the corner of Main and California was designed in the  Renaissance Revival style.  The building had one of the first elevators in Ventura County.  Erle Stanley Gardner had his secretary type up the drafts for his first Perry Mason novels at this location.  Many of Mr. Gardner’s mystery and nonfiction works are available at E. P. Foster Library.
