Inscription.  In 1894, four years after the formation of the Kern County Land Company, the firm built an office building that demonstrated its "Faith in the Future" of Bakersfield. The structure with outside walls of cream colored pressed brick, trimmed with gray sandstone and granite, was designed by architect Henry A. Schulze of San Francisco. By the 1950s the Kern County Land Company had outgrown the building and sold it in 1959.
