The building was built in 1915 as a Carnegie library, named the Eagle Rock Carnegie Library.[3] It was rebuilt in 1927,[3] and then became the Eagle Rock Branch Library in the Los Angeles Public Library system. The library was closed in 1981 when a larger accessible facility opened.


In 1997 the Cultural Affairs Department established The Eagle Rock Community Cultural Center (ERCCC) to provide cultural events to the community. [4] The Eagle Rock Community Cultural Association soon began doing business as Center for the Arts Eagle Rock (CFAER), located at the corner of Colorado Boulevard and Rockland, one block west of Eagle Rock Boulevard, in the Eagle Rock district of Los Angeles.[3]

The building was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument on 6/18/1985.[5] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
