Constructed in 1930 in Zig-Zag Moderne style, the Helms Building played an important part in the history of Culver City. It housed the Helms Bakery until 1969, a family owned business founded by Paul Helms. Helms Bakery was known as "the home of Helms Olympic Bread" since it was a food supplier for the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles. Locals listened for the whistle of more than 1000 Helms Coaches as the vehicles traversed Southern California with their fresh baked goods. The building remains an important commercial structure, and although it is located in the City of Culver City and the City of Los Angeles, it was awarded Landmark status by the City of Culver City.
