The C. A. Elster Building is a historic commercial building located at the corner of California State Route 190 and Tule River Dr. in Springville, California. The brick building was built in 1912 by Charles Alonzo Elster, a significant businessman in the area. When it opened, the building contained several of Springville's main businesses, including its post office, a bank, a drugstore, the Odd Fellows hall, and the town's first telephone. The second floor of the building was used for residences, and the basement contained Springville's first ice plant.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 25, 1982.[1]
