Baird HomeH.P. #233
Adam Baird Home (1890)

136 N. Van Ness Avenue
Adam Baird, Builder

The Baird Home is an excellent example of the Italianate style. Residences contructed in this idiom were once very common throughout California, but have been systematically demolished within the Fresno civic center area since the 1920s, when the first major commercial expansion of the city began. There are very few surviving examples of this caliber.
