Building/structure dates: 1880 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1952 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1998 demolished
Significance: Building 203, the Power House, is significant for the period from 1886 to 1906 as one of the only building at Agnews to survive the devastating 1906 earthquake. The original building's brick construction and tall-segmented windows represent the building material, methods, and style of the Victorian era hospital. In addition, Building 203, including its later addition, is significant for the period from 1916 to 1952 as auxiliary structure at Agnews State Hospital. Buildings such as the Power House, Laundry, Mattress and Upholstery Shop, and Cannery allowed the patients and employees to meet many of their needs on site.
