Location: 201 E. Amerige Avenue
1913: Mission Revival

Fullerton General HospitalThis unusual combination of Mission Revival and Craftsman bungalow elements was built originally as the Fullerton General Hospital. The plan is essentially that of a bungalow court. Single-story wings extend from a twostory central structure positioned at the rear of the property to create a well-defined entry courtyard. Mission elements are apparent in the cupola that has an arch in each story and a small copper dome. The construction of the wings, with their exposed rafters, low profiles and gentle roof lines, are linked to the Craftsman tradition. The blend of Mission and Craftsman is not exceptional and can be seen elsewhere in Fullerton, but in no other example is the Craftsman element so strong.
