Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2300
Building/structure dates: 1929 initial construction
Significance: The building maintains integrity of setting within actively used State government buildings in the area. It contributes historically to the government district surrounding the Capitol. The Strub building is associated with development of a State building complex in downtown, 1911 to the present. It was the fourth State building to be constructed following the Legislature's decision to direct a State building program in Sacramento. The original tenants of the building were the California Highway Commission (precursor to Caltrans) and the Division of Motor Vehicles. The building has been in continuous use as a State office building since its completion in 1926. The building was constructed by Charles H. Strub with the intent to lease it to the State as office space. The architect was F. Eugene Barton of San Francisco who designed the building in a Period Revival style imitating Gothic motives. Its most significant architectural elements are the P and 11th Street facades and the P Street decorative art tiles on the entry lobby stairs and stairs to the second floor.
