Building/structure dates: 1906 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1935 subsequent work

Significance: Building 211, the Old Gas House, is significant for the period from 1886 to 1906 as one of the only buildings at Agnews State Hospital to survive the devastating 1906 earthquake. The building's brick construction, tall-segmented windows, and high gabled roof represent the building material, methods, and style of the Victorian era hospital. In addition, Building 211 is significant for the period from 1916 to 1952 as an auxiliary structure at the hospital. Buildings such as the Fire House (the later use of Building 211), Electrical and Plumbing Shop, Laundry, Mattress and Upholstery Shop, and Cannery allowed the patients and employees to meet many of their needs (including fire fighting) on site.
