SINCE 1946

Located at 1905 18th Street, Guild House was constructed in 1909 and represents one of the best examples of early craftsman architecture in Bakersfield.


Tiffany glass chandeliers and sidelights which adorn the home are original. Welcoming visitors to Guild House, the dragon-carved fireplace still displays its original blue tiles, which were custom designed by Gump’s of San Francisco.


In 1992, Guild House was placed on the Register of Historic Places by the Bakersfield Historic Preservation Commission.
