National Register #82002176
Maubridge Apartments
2344 Tulare Street
Built 1911

The name Maubridge Apartments was derived by combining of the names of Maupin and Trowbridge, prominent Fresno doctors who financed the building. It is the earliest substantial apartment building still standing in Fresno. It was advertised in 1912 as a prestigious and exclusive address.

Benjamin G. McDougall, who designed many buildings in the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Joaquin Valley, designed the Maubridge Apartments as a modified palazzo combining Italian and English Renaissance elements. Although somewhat eclectic in its assemblage of details, the building still shows the strong influence of academic revivalism of the early 20th century on local design.

Adapted from the NRHP Nomination dated in 14 August 1980.
