Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Marvin J. Gates House (Oakhurst Apartments; Oakhurst East), 500 Oakhurst Drive; 1902-1903.A large mansion, it had cinder stucco exterior wall finish and red tile roofs. Converted to eleven dwelling units in 1865 by the Clinton Investment Corporation, the building has been altered. Asphalt shingle roofing, re-built soffits that eliminated the original brackets, and white painted stucco are among the changes. A detached caretaker's house is located across Oakhurst Drive to the west. The building design is of Spanish Colonial revival Style. This mansion inspired construction of other buildings of similar style in Clinton. The stylized gables of the Gates House can be seen in silhouette on other structures about town.
