The first building for Saint Anne's Parish.  Constructed at the corner of Second and Harrison Streets in downtown Porterville in 1892 as a mission church of Saint Mary's Visalia.  The building was razed in 1925 upon completion of the new Saint Anne's Church and School at the corner of Morton and F Streets.
