Inscription.  Esslinger building was constructed in 1939 by Dr. Paul Esslinger after he was inspired by a 1937 trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina. The medical building was constructed using poured-in-place concrete and is one of the best examples of Streamline Moderne architecture in Orange County.

Esslinger building was considered one of the most advanced medical practices of its time, offering services such as eye-ear-nose treatments, operations, diathermy, x-ray use, laboratory work, and dental in 23 rooms.

The local Griffith Family purchased Esslinger building in 2002 and completed its rehabilitation in 2003. This uniquely iconic building has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1988.
